Subjectkexec boot regression

I have this big box that takes forever to boot, so I use kexec to boot
into new kernels. Works fine, but some time past 2.6.32 it stopped
working. Instead of wasting brain cycles on finding out why, I handed
the problem to my trusty regression friend - git bisect.

This is what it found (sorry Yinghai it's you again, you owe me a beer
for hours of 2.6.32-git bisecting ;-)

99935a7a59eaca0292c1a5880e10bae03f4a5e3d is the first bad commit

x86/PCI: read root resources from IOH on Intel

For intel systems with multi IOH, we should read peer root resources
directly from PCI config space, and don't trust _CRS.

I could not revert this single commit, as a further commit made other
changes. So I reverted 67f241f4 first and then 99935a7a. I confirmed
that this kernel then works fine.

With current -git, I get tons and tons of:

[ 16.841724] pci 0000:00:01.0: BAR 7: no parent found for bridge [io

I can provide a full log if needed.
