Rogério Brito's Clevo M5X0JE laptop seems to boot with both CardBus
mem apertures set to prefetchable. I think there's evidence of this
in one of the video boot logs Rogério mentioned in this thread:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/1/6/343 because I noticed the same thing
and fixed a nearby bug in lspci.

I looked for it, but didn't find it. I think it would be useful if
Yinghai could locate it, transcribe it into a bugzilla report, and
mention the bugzilla URL in this commit log.

I think Rogério did try the patch, but I don't know whether he
observed different behavior. I think it *does* fix a bug; it's just
that his box has more serious problems that we haven't figured out
yet.
