Could be resource exhaustion or, more likely, we ran out because we
now assign resource to things that don't need them, leaving none for
things that *do* need them. This sounds like a regression, so we

Does this problem keep the driver from working? (Sometimes drivers
don't actually use all the BARs a device supports.)
