The PCI specs don't use the "outbound BAR" terminology.  I assume this
is what we normally call "windows" or "apertures" for MMIO access by
the CPU?  (The specs rarely use those terms either, but they're
commonly used in Linux, and the PCIe spec does mention them a couple

By "request huge outbound memory," I assume you simply mean the device
has a huge BAR, right?
