I wonder about that [mem 0xc0000000-0xcfffffff] range, too. But as
far as I can tell, we don't actually try to use that anywhere yet.
(We assign part of that range to the 00:1c.0 bridge to bus 03, but
I don't see any devices actually using it.)

One problem I see is that _CRS includes the [mem 0xd0000000-0xdfffffff]
range, but intel_bus.c didn't find it. We DO need this range for the
Radeon, and the Radeon works with "pci=use_crs", so the host bridge must
be routing it.

I think this must be a detail of the Intel host bridge, not something
specific to Jeff's Dell system. This problem should affect all systems
using that host bridge.

PCI: MMCONFIG for domain 0000 [bus 00-ff] at [mem 0xe0000000-0xefffffff] (base 0xe0000000)

ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI0] (0000:00)
pci_root PNP0A08:00: host bridge window [mem 0xc0000000-0xdfffffff]
pci_root PNP0A08:00: host bridge window [mem 0xf0000000-0xfed8ffff]

IOH bus: [00, fb]
IOH bus: 00 index 1 mmio: [e0000000, fdffffff]

pci 0000:00:07.0: PCI bridge to [bus 04-04]
pci 0000:00:07.0: bridge window [mem 0xd0000000-0xdfffffff 64bit pref]
pci 0000:04:00.0: reg 10: [mem 0xd0000000-0xdfffffff 64bit pref]

Another problem is that intel_bus.c didn't remove the MMCONFIG region
[mem 0xe0000000-0xefffffff] from the window. I think there's code there
to do that, but there must be something wrong with it.
