Most of the PCI bugs we

patch doesn't have any dependencies, I can put it in my linux-next
No dependencies, I had added a function e820_search_gap which is used by
this patch. This function is already in the mainline tree.
Thanks for applying.

Ok, I stuffed it in my linux-next branch. I'll let it sit there for a day or so though, just to shake out any build problems etc. in linux-next before asking Linus to pull the whole lot.

For me it seems a little risky to push up that early. I think it would be better to let it sit longer in linux-next for this. After all this is a major change how IO resources are allocated. That is why I didn't pull
it into the ACPI release branch.
