Ok I've updated the tree to cover the regressions reported so far,
including the printk change so we get fewer spurious reports. Note it
hasn't gone through linux-next yet, but the patches are all small and
have each been tested individually.

There's one change in particular I'd like you (along with the cc'd
arch maintainers) to review:

PCI: clear bridge resource range if BIOS assigned bad one

This fixes a regression rather minimally, but may have side effects I'm
not seeing. An alternative to that fix would be to revert

commit d65245c3297ac63abc51a976d92f45f2195d2854

PCI: don't shrink bridge resources

but it seems that's a bit more risky at this point, since it could
affect hotplug and rescan cases. Really this code needs to be
reworked, especially in light of the revert of
977d17bb1749517b353874ccdc9b85abc7a58c2a which tried (and failed)
to perform aggressive reallocation when devices weren't configured.
I'll try to find some time next week to work on that.
