The "pci2" is the problem. The cardbus adapter hangs behind a
PCI-PCI bridge.

The ressource allocation of "cbb" is broken (well, the reason is
that the PCI framework doesn't provide much support to do it right...)
and will allocate addresses which are not forwarded by the PCI-PCI bridge.
So the code reads all-ones (probably gets master aborts, but I didn't
check) if it tries to access these windows.
This is not easily solved, unfortunately.
