If it is incorrect for the first access to be a 32-bit read of both
the Vendor and the Device ID, please cite the relevant section of the
spec in your patch.

I don't like to make changes to generic code to accommodate specific
pieces of hardware because then we restrict future changes based on
some device that will soon be obsolete and forgotten.

I'm pretty sure the spec language about CRS handling is careful to
talk about "reads that *include* Vendor ID", not just "reads of Vendor
ID", so the implication is that it covers 32-bit reads as well as
16-bit reads.
