This probably isn't needed but I don't think it is the cause of
the problem. It is just counting the number of _CRS returned
resources and I believe subsequent visits to setup_resource()
for additional returned resources will generate the same warning
as it also would if the instruction were removed and no longer
being used to keep an accurate count.

I suspect that the resource array is simply not large enough
for that system (and possibly others) and will have to be made
larger by increasing PCI_BUS_NUM_RESOURCES.
