Guys, I think you are mixing things up here, we discussed this to
death, read the archives please.

The ACPI IO descriptors AddressMinimum/AddressMaximum describe
the IO space PCI bus addresses. The AddressTranslation field
provides the PCI IO space -> CPU physical address translation, or
put it differently, the secondary to primary bus translation in
ACPI jargon, that's how ACPI tables must be written for IO space,
at least that's what IA64 does (and on ia64 IO space is memory
mapped, as on arm64).

I bet APM IO descriptors specify the *CPU* physical address in
the AddressMinimum field, and that's where the problem lies.

Jiang's patch:

parses the IO descriptors and stores the AddressMinimum, AddressMaximum
in the IO resource (with AddressTranslation as offset which must be the
*CPU* physical address mapping IO), from the log above it seems to me in
AddressMinimum APM specifies the *CPU* physical address generating IO

All in all, I was right to fear this would happen, and I already
raised the point within the ACPI spec working group, ACPI IO
descriptors specification is ambiguous and we must agree on how
they have to be specified once for all.
