Are you really really sure?

Try just removing the IORESOURCE_BUSY. As mentioned, if we expect the PCI 
BAR's to work with the e820 resources, then BUSY really is simply not 
right any more. Not that I think it should matter either..

The ones that are added _early_ should be IORESOURCE_BUSY (ie the ones 
that cover RAM), but the others we now expect to nest with PCI BARs.

But since we add them after we have parsed the BAR's, I don't even see why 
the BUSY bit should even matter - we've already added the fixed BARs, and 
any newly allocated non-fixed ones shouldn't be allocated in e820 areas 
_regardless_ of whether the BUSY bit is set or not.

So pls explain why it matters?
