Default PCI: allow matching of prefetchable resources to non-prefetchable windows

SRU Justification:

Impact: PCI devices may fail to work due to a resource allocation
failure. When this happens the kernel prints a "address space collision"
message.

Fix: Upstream commit 8c8def26bfaa704db67d515da3eb92cf26067548

Test case: Boot a kernel on an affected machine and observe that the
"address space collision" messages are no longer present. Resources for
the affected devices will appear in /proc/iomem and /proc/ioports with
the patch applied. Verified on LP #424142.

Default PCI: allow matching of prefetchable resources to non-prefetchable windows

From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/424142

I'm not entirely sure it needs to go into 32, but it's probably the right
thing to do. Another way of explaining the patch is:

- we currently pick the _first_ exactly matching bus resource entry, but
the _last_ inexactly matching one. Normally first/last shouldn't
matter, but bus resource entries aren't actually all created equal: in
a transparent bus, the last resources will be the parent resources,
which we should generally try to avoid unless we have no choice. So
"first matching" is the thing we should always aim for.

- the patch is a bit bigger than it needs to be, because I simplified the
logic at the same time. It used to be a fairly incomprehensible

if ((res->flags & IORESOURCE_PREFETCH) && !(r->flags & IORESOURCE_PREFETCH))
best = r; /* Approximating prefetchable by non-prefetchable */

and technically, all the patch did was to make that complex choice be
even more complex (it basically added a "&& !best" to say that if we
already gound a non-prefetchable window for the prefetchable resource,
then we won't override an earlier one with that later one: remember
"first matching").

- So instead of that complex one with three separate conditionals in one,
I split it up a bit, and am taking advantage of the fact that we
already handled the exact case, so if 'res->flags' has the PREFETCH
bit, then we already know that 'r->flags' will _not_ have it. So the
simplified code drops the redundant test, and does the new '!best' test
separately. It also uses 'continue' as a way to ignore the bus
resource we know doesn't work (ie a prefetchable bus resource is _not_
acceptable for anything but an exact match), so it turns into:

/* We can't insert a non-prefetch resource inside a prefetchable parent .. */
if (r->flags & IORESOURCE_PREFETCH)
continue;
/* .. but we can put a prefetchable resource inside a non-prefetchable one */
if (!best)
best = r;

instead. With the comments, it's now six lines instead of two, but it's
conceptually simpler, and I _could_ have written it as two lines:

if ((res->flags & IORESOURCE_PREFETCH) && !best)
best = r; /* Approximating prefetchable by non-prefetchable */

but I thought that was too damn subtle.

D'oh. This is for lucid, not natty.

Not yet, was planning to then it slipped my mind. I'll do it today.
