    pref_mem64 describes the resource, not the HW.

    All the PCI specs define Type 1 configuration space with Prefetchable Memory
    register as 64-bit. Even if the Type 1 (PCI Bridge) HW ignores this register.
    See "7.5.3. Type 1 Configuration Space Header" of PCI EXPRESS BASE

    Hrm...I don't think this is a quirk. PCI spec defines 64-bit PrefMem
    window register regardless of what type of resource we program into it.
