It is up to the caller of fpga_region_program_fpga to put the bridges
before programming again. That prevents something other than the
caller from reprogramming a partial region or messing with the bridges
until the caller puts the bridges.

For example, for DT support, applying an overlay calls
fpga_region_program_fpga() which gets the bridges, disables them, does
the programming, and reenables the bridges. Then the bridges are
held, preventing anything else from disabling the bridges until the
overlay is removed. This was important in the DT case since the
overlay could include child nodes for hardware in the FPGA. Allowing
anyone else to play with the bridges while those drivers were
expecting hardware access could be bad.

I can't remember for certain, but I think this code has to put the
bridges here because this patch set allows userspace to reset the PR
region's logic by disabling/reenabling the bridge to clear things out
between acceleration runs (which Hao promises is OK to do, it's
documented elsewhere in the pachset). It probably could use a comment
right here to explain why the bridges are put here so future
generations know not to break this.
