PCI driver

We have implemented a driver for a PCI sound card and are attempting to
use it on a PPC400 Yosemite board.  However, as soon as any port I/O is
attempted, we get a machine check error:

dream/mem/mpu 9 0 1 "w" 10
MIDI message chip 9 mpu_port 0 offset 1 direction 1 16bit 0 data 0x10
outb 0x331
Data machine check in kernel mode.

Oops: machine check, sig: 7 [#1]

Are we doing something wrong?  We use pci_resource_start(pci,0) to get
the BAR which returns 0xFFF0.  This also matches what is
in /proc/ioports, but outb/outw/outl all cause the machine check crash.
