In resolving a network driver issue with the MIPS Malta platform, the root
cause was traced into pci_claim_resource():

MIPS System Controller's PCI I/O resources stay in 0x1000-0xffffff. When
PCI quirks start claiming resources using request_resource_conflict(),
collisions happen and -EBUSY is returned, thereby rendering the onboard AMD
PCnet32 NIC unaware of quirks' region and preventing the NIC from functioning.
For PCI quirks, PIIX4 ACPI is expected to claim 0x1000-0x103f, and PIIX4 SMB to
claim 0x1100-0x110f, both of which fall into the MSC I/O range. Certainly, we
can increase the start point of this range in arch/mips/mti-malta/malta-pci.c to
avoid the collisions. But a fix in here looks more justified, though it seems to
have a wider impact. Using insert_xxx as opposed to request_xxx will register
PCI quirks' resources as children of MSC I/O and return OK, instead of seeing
collisions which are actually resolvable.
