So it's a bit messy in here because we deal with several things.

What the firmware gives us is the range it assigned, but that isn't
necessarily the HW limits (almost never is in fact).

In some cases we honor it, for example when in "probe only" mode where
we prevent any reassigning, and in some case, we ignore it and let the
PCI core renumber things (typically because the FW "forgot" to set aside
bus numbers for a cardbus slot for example, that sort of things).

So it's a bit of a tricky situation.

Off the top of my head, I'm pretty sure that most if not all of our PCI
host bridges simply support a full 0...255 range and there is no sharing
between bridges like on x86, they are just different domains.

But I can't vouch 100% for some of the oddball cases like Pegasos or
some freescale gear.

Cheers,
Ben.
