    Subject[PATCH 1/2] PCI: make pci_claim_resource() work with conflict resources as appropriate
    In resolving a network driver issue with the MIPS Malta platform, the root
    cause was traced into pci_claim_resource():

    MIPS System Controller's PCI I/O resources stay in 0x1000-0xffffff. When
    PCI quirks start claiming resources using request_resource_conflict(),
    collisions happen and -EBUSY is returned, thereby rendering the onboard AMD
    PCnet32 NIC unaware of quirks' region and preventing the NIC from functioning.
    For PCI quirks, PIIX4 ACPI is expected to claim 0x1000-0x103f, and PIIX4 SMB to
    claim 0x1100-0x110f, both of which fall into the MSC I/O range. Certainly, we
    can increase the start point of this range in arch/mips/mti-malta/malta-pci.c to
    avoid the collisions. But a fix in here looks more justified, though it seems to
    have a wider impact. Using insert_xxx as opposed to request_xxx will register
    PCI quirks' resources as children of MSC I/O and return OK, instead of seeing
    collisions which are actually resolvable.
