Yep, we were going to do that, but chose to use the
1MB region already setup for the IMMRs since its already
marked as non-prefetchable. We were only doing reads, so
it wasn't going to hurt anything.

I doubt that marking one of the other BAR regions
as non-prefetchable will give a different result.
However, we're more than happy to double-check if
you'd like.
