Seems to me like we're going in circles. You said here:


that the kernel doesn't pass the e820 reserved ranges to the second

I suggested to use a special IORES descriptor for them -

Now you say that that is not enough and some of those you want passed,
are still marked as IORES_DESC_NONE.

Sounds to me like you need try again.
