Yup, this all looks reasonable to me, too. But these regions must be
different than they were when the PNP quirk ran. I wonder if the BIOS
left them unprogrammed, we ran the PNP quirk and discovered all these
"conflicts," then PCI came along and assigned resources.

Your dmesg shows power state changes for the PCI devices. Maybe
the BIOS left them in D3 and unprogrammed:

Intel ICH Modem 0000:00:1f.6: power state changed by ACPI to D0
Intel ICH 0000:00:1f.5: power state changed by ACPI to D0
Intel ICH 0000:00:1f.5: enabling device (0000 -> 0003)

If the PCI device isn't fully initialized, it doesn't seem right to
check it for resource conflicts. But I don't know how to tell that.

Can you figure out where the 1f.5 and 1f.6 resources get assigned?
