This read (to resource->start) can cause a hang on 8572ds when there
is a PCI card plugged into the uli slot and the card is configured
(but not enabled) in the memory space.

The read is going to the slot, 2.11, which has 0x8000_0000 assigned.
To be safe, the read needs to go to a device internal to the uli.
