After thinking about it some more, I think we should really try to
keep that logic completely out of the host controller driver and instead
make it generic enough to cover all possible cases.
Let's make sure that nobody ever has to call the range parser from
a PCI host driver again, no matter how weird their hardware setup is,
and put the necessary code in a common location. This will make your
driver even simpler.

You should normally see a parent resource for the PCI bus and the virtio-pci
resources under that. For some reason, neither of the two appears to have
been registered correctly.
