Subject: [PATCH v2 4/4] PCI: Allow extend_bridge_window() to shrink resource
 if necessary

Remove checks for resource size in extend_bridge_window(). This is
necessary to allow the pci_bus_distribute_available_resources() to
function when the kernel parameter pci=hpmemsize=nn[KMG] is used to
allocate resources. Because the kernel parameter sets the size of all
hotplug bridges to be the same, there are problems when nested hotplug
bridges are encountered. Fitting a downstream hotplug bridge with size X
and normal bridges with non-zero size Y into parent hotplug bridge with
size X is impossible, and hence the downstream hotplug bridge needs to
shrink to fit into its parent.

Add check for if bridge is extended or shrunken and reflect that in the
call to pci_dbg().

Do not change resource size if new size is zero (if we have run out of a
bridge window resource) to prevent the PCI resource assignment code from
attempting to assign a zero-sized resource. If this happens, we are
running out of resource space, anyway, so not shrinking the resource
will not deny space for other resources. This prevents the following
from happening:

pcieport 0000:07:04.0: can't enable device: BAR 13 [io  0x1000-0x0fff] not claimed
