OK. You said "a range that has the nonrelocatable flag set should be
used for IORESOURCE_PCI_FIXED mappings." I thought you meant that the
range was a bridge window, and somehow PCI_FIXED BARs should be put in
But maybe you meant that nonrelocatable ranges should have the
IORESOURCE_PCI_FIXED bit set in their struct resources. That would
mean we couldn't move the window, but we could put relocatable BARs
inside the window.
What needs to be implemented? Just the code that would set
IORESOURCE_PCI_FIXED for nonrelocatable ranges?
