    This seems like the real problem: PCI has the wrong idea of the
    resources available on bus 00. The pci_bus->resource[0] for bus 00
    points to ioport_resource (the default put there by pci_create_bus()),
    when it should point to to msc_io_resource instead.

    Some architectures fill in the pci_bus->resource[] array directly for
    host bridges (for examples, try 'grep -r "resource\[0\] = " arch/').
    On x86 and ia64, we use pci_bus_remove_resources() and
    pci_bus_add_resource(), and I'd prefer that style for new code because
    it hides some ugly implementation details.

    I'm a little puzzled that we don't see this problem on more
    architectures. The grep above only found a few arches that update the
    root bus resources. I would expect most of the ones it didn't find to
    be broken the same way Malta is.
