Paul verified that I *did* break this.  More details in the bugzilla:

The problem is basically that I used resource_size() to figure out
whether there's any available space.  resource_size() is res->end -
res->start + 1, so applying it to [mem 0x00000000-0xffffffff] returns
zero in a kernel 32-bit resource addresses, i.e., with

Paul, I assume you have CONFIG_PHYS_ADDR_T_64BIT=n (which is perfectly
legal); let me know if otherwise.

  pci_bus 0000:00: pci_bus_alloc_from_region: alloc [mem 0x00000000]
size 0x1000 from bus region [0x00000000-0xffffffff]
  pci_bus 0000:00: pci_bus_alloc_from_region: [mem
0x00000000-0xffffffff]: no space (avail [mem 0x00000000-0xffffffff])
