This solves the problem you encountered.

But, I think, it still does not fix the following scenario:

adjust_resource() failing to allocate additional resource to a hotplug bridge
that has no children. In this case ->flags of that 'struct resource'
continues to be set even when no resource is allocated to that hot-plug bridge.
