pcibios_fixup isn't the right place to do that ;) You should do this
from a pci quirk imho.

note that there's still a problem with XFree which will "see"  those
BARs and, according to the log posted by Sven, shoke. Sven, can you
try "hiding" the host bridge completely from the config ops and see
if that helps with XFree ? That's not a very good solution though,
we'll have to do something different about it. Now if only XFree
stopped mucking with the PCI bus...

The kernel doesn't do anything to the L2 cache, it all depends what
you firmware does to it.
