I had a similar problem and fixed it. I didn't announce it yet because my fix
is a dirty hack and i didn't have a cleaner solution. I don't have the patched
sources handy right now, but i think it had to do something with this
PCI_FLAGS_MEM_ENABLED in dev/pci/if_fxp_pci.c

Maybe something like pa->pa_flags &= ~PCI_FLAGS_MEM_ENABLED in this file in
function fxp_pci_attach right after variable declaration helps.

I didn't find out a way to give a suitable attach arg in kernel config file,
so the dirty hack, as i just had to test something.
