then the final check below will catch it. And I doubt that config
images can be so small. The lowest size I've ever seen is more
than 1MiB.

other places set or clean additional pci command flags, use
different pci config accessors or contain debug code. And I reuse
pre-initialized cmd in the error path, so the usage pattern here
is not the same as in the atyfb_base driver.
