This paragraph seems wrong.

It first says that PCI memory resources contain the same values that the
PCI device has in its BAR.  It then goes on to say that they are CPU
physical addresses.  That is not true.

For example, DC21285 systems always have done this as: the PCI bars
contain the _bus_ addresses, which tend to be in the range 0 to
0x7fffffff.  These correspond with a CPU physical address of
0x80000000 to 0xffffffff.  The PCI bus resources for IOMEM resources
contains the CPU physical address of the mapping.

Yes, I think this is a correct patch inspite of the description. :)

according to speedtest.net.
