Yeah, thanks.

Hmm, so do you have 64k of I/O space per-bus? That gives 8x256x64k = 128M
IIUC, so not sure what your 32MB is for.

Hmm, but pci_iomap winds up calling __pci_ioport_map, which expands to
ioport_map which just does:

	return PCI_IOBASE + (port & IO_SPACE_LIMIT);

so I'm struggling to see what your patch achieves.
