PCI probe code

Ive been looking over our PCI probe code and it could do with a cleanup.
It would be nice to make things simpler before PCI domains and PCI hotplug
goes in. A recent bug I found suggests that our BAR reallocation code has
always been buggy and I got to thinking...

Can we assume that OF will always get the BAR allocation correct? If so
then a bunch of code goes away. Even if this is not the case, we should
be able to use the generic hooks a lot more than we currently do
(eg we should probably use pci_assign_unassigned_resources)

The question I have is how does iSeries handle BAR allocation?
