    Thanks for testing (again). I'm not confident that this series is
    going to be successful, so I started looking for other approaches.

    I can't reproduce the exact problem you're seeing, but in my
    kludged-up attempt, the patch below is enough to keep us from
    assigning the space below 1MB to a device.

    Would you guys (Andy & Andy, what a coincidence :-)) mind giving
    it a try? This is intended to work on top of current upstream,
    with no other patches required.

    x86/PCI: never allocate PCI MMIO resources below BIOS_END

    When we move a PCI device or assign resources to a device not configured
    by the BIOS, we want to avoid the BIOS region below 1MB. Note that if the
    BIOS places devices below 1MB, we leave them there.
