It's not just a check, and not just general...

Generally, you need it -- if PnP grabs an I/O resource, PCI can no
longer do so (making the driver fail) which is the same problem that
quirk_system_pci_resources() upto that point solved for mem resources only.

And specifically, I definitely need it to not have my soundcard driver
crap out due to PnPACPI grabbing a range that overlaps with its BAR.

I don't know why your 1f.5 and 1f.6 are grabbing the "motherboard I/O
ports" 0x00-0xff (with your BIOS also advertising those ports through
ACPI) but obviously, 78 messages are not something to put up with.

Bjorn might have something more to say about the general setup of things
here but at this point and for now it might make most sense to just go
ahead and do our doings without noting that we do. Ie, just delete the

Subject: [PATCH] PNP: delete quirk_system_pci_resources() warning.

Some boxes trigger too many of them.
