Sorry I missed the 16->24 change and other good information
in Larry's earlier message. There were 17 occurrences of the
"PCI: transparent bridge..." message that Larry added which
indicates that _CRS returned 17 resources. This is 4 more
than the current 13 maximum which explains the problem.
I believe Larry's 8 slot increase (16->24) in the array size
provided 4 slots beyond what is needed for Larry's box but
an even higher ceiling would certainly feel more comfortable.
I was thinking 32 but 64 would be better if there aren't any
downsides elsewhere of making the array that big.
