This seems like the real problem: PCI has the wrong idea of the
resources available on bus 00.  The pci_bus->resource[0] for bus 00
points to ioport_resource (the default put there by pci_create_bus()),
when it should point to to msc_io_resource instead.

Some architectures fill in the pci_bus->resource[] array directly for
host bridges (for examples, try 'grep -r "resource\[0\] = " arch/').
On x86 and ia64, we use pci_bus_remove_resources() and
pci_bus_add_resource(), and I'd prefer that style for new code because
it hides some ugly implementation details.

I'm a little puzzled that we don't see this problem on more
architectures.  The grep above only found a few arches that update the
root bus resources.  I would expect most of the ones it didn't find to
be broken the same way Malta is.
