For what it's worth, this problem (PCI devices which ignore the top 16
bits of their BAR) also occurs with the original Ensoniq AudioPCI (the
1370 chip, not the 1371 or any of the 137x in the SoundBlaster product
line). Unfortunately, it's also been blessed in the PCI 2.2 spec as an
OK thing to do. So, according to the current PCI spec, this is really
a bug in the SRM :(
