OK. Let me dig in the code to find where that is..

<nods> I think I have to have both (BARs and host bridge apertures) as when
we do PCI passthrough to a guest - we might do it without a bridge.

<nods> Good catch!

However there are is one thing this patch does not cover - that is if the
PCI bridge window is outside the P2M tree we keep (the P2M tree is a lookup
system to construct the PTE's with valid and correct physical addresses) we
end up always returning 0. David Vrabel suggests to return just the PFN value
which would certainly solve this particular problem - but I am bit
uncomfortable of doing surgery in that code.
