Patch :

It should be. The patch listed should be good as far as I'm concerned but needs to be pushed by Bjorn as PnP mainatainer. Generally speaking 0 wouldn't be a _very_ necesarily invalid value it seems so it's maybe not very nice.

If someone wants a changelog though, this should do:

PNP: avoid checking unitialized BARs for conflicts

Avoid checking a PCI BAR for conflicts if the BIOS left it unitialized.
