Thanks for your comment. I will improve the patch log next post.

In this function, i printed its values, and only got the value of reserved
type, so i changed the IORES_DESC_NONE to the IORES_DESC_RESERVED.

In addition, after the new descriptor 'IORES_DESC_RESERVED' is introduced,
the IORES_DESC_NONE does not include the IORES_DESC_RESERVED any more, it
could miss to handle the value of the reserved type.

Do you mean i should never touch the three chunks? If i made a mistake, i
will remove this changes next post.

Thanks.
