[PATCH 2.6] fix pci_update_resource() / IORESOURCE_UNSET on PPC

The prism54 (http://prism54.org) driver for my cardbus adapter works
with 2.4.x, but not 2.6.x on a Titanium G4 Powerbook IV.

On 2.6.x the error message was
PCI:0001:02:00.0 Resource 0 [00000000-00001fff] is unassigned

After investigating differences in the PCI code of 2.4.x and 2.6.x, i
noticed that 2.4.x/arc/ppc/kernel/pci.c:pcibios_update_resource()
contained a couple of lines that unset the IORESOURCE_UNSET bitflag.

In 2.6.x, this is handled by the generic PCI core in
drivers/pci/setup-res.c:pci_update_resource() code.  However, the code
is missing the 'res->flags &= ~IORESOURCE_UNSET' part.

The below fix re-adds that section from 2.4.x.

I'm not sure wether this belongs into the arch-independent PCI api.
Anyway, on PPC it seems to be needed for certain cardbus devices.

Any comments welcome.
