Good idea.

How about setting these to sensible defaults that will work on
most platforms, so that the majority won't have to set them at

Basically, the defaults should clearly be 

unsigned long pcibios_min_io  = 0x1000;
unsigned long pcibios_min_mem = 0x01000000;

This just gets us out of the ISA bus range, so an ISA card behind
a bridge can use all cards correctly. Most of the ones that
currently set both to zero can probably just use those defaults
as well, but some architectures have multiple buses or don't start
the memory range at zero, so they might need higher values.

This PCIBIOS_MIN_IO setting is wrong, and PIO doesn't work on versatile
because of this. I have an older patch series that I should dig out again
to fix them and make versatile use the defaults. Don't worry about this
