I opened this bugzilla: and attached your
dmesg to it. I see what the problem is, but I don't have a good idea
yet for how to fix it.

The problem is that we don't handle e820 and PNP device resource
information correctly. From the attached dmesg, we have this:

BIOS-e820: [mem 0x00000000fed10000-0x00000000fed13fff] reserved
system 00:00: [mem 0xfed10000-0xfed17fff] could not be reserved

The 00:00 PNP device describes the correct 32K range for the Intel MCH
(see [1] for details). But the [mem 0xfed10000-0xfed13fff] entry from
e820 was added to the resource map first, and it covers only the first
16K of the MCH range. This caused the subsequent PNP reservation to
fail. Then the snb_uncore_imc_init_box() reservation caused the
warning, because it would be a child of the e820 entry but it covers
more space.

[1] fixed a similar issue where the PNP device described only the
first 16K of the MCH range. This case is slightly different because
here it's the e820 entry that is incorrect.
