I think this is a firmware problem.  On my box, the range for
Bus 00:01 is more sensible (0x2000-0x2fff), but there are several
other oddities:

	- IO space 0x0-0x0 reported for 00:01 and 00:02
	- mem space 0x0-0x0 reported for 00:01 and 00:02
	- IO space 0x3000-0x3000 reported for 00:02
	- mem space 0xa0000-0xfffff reported for both 00:00 and 00:03
	- IO space 0x3b0-0x3df reported for both 00:00 and 00:03

We could ignore the zero-length regions, which would kill a few warnings,
but the latter two (regions reported for two buses) just seem completely
broken.  And I think I'd rather just leave the warnings as aids to
finding firmware defects.

We will probably always get the warning about ports 0x3b0-0x3df
already being allocated, because the VGA ports are reserved long
before the root bridges are enumerated.
