Rather than stepping through all IO resources, then stepping through
all MMIO resources, etc., we can just iterate over the resource list
once directly.

This can change the order in /sys, e.g.,

# cat /sys/devices/pnp0/00:07/resources # OLD
state = active
io 0x3f8-0x3ff
irq 4

# cat /sys/devices/pnp0/00:07/resources # NEW
state = active
irq 4
io 0x3f8-0x3ff

The old code artificially sorted resources by type; the new code
just lists them in the order we read them from the ISAPNP hardware
or the BIOS.
