Are there any existing fixups like that? Concrete examples would help
figure out the best way forward.

Most arches call pci_read_bridge_bases() from pcibios_fixup_bus(). I
think that's a poor place to do it because it's code that normally
doesn't have to be arch-specific. Resource claiming is also usually
done from arch code, and it shouldn't be arch-specific either.

If we move both the read and claim into generic code, then we might
need to make sure there's a fixup phase in between or something.
