IIRC this is for the fixed VGA IO registers only, which would overlap.
I have used multiple PCI VGAs on non-x86 hardware ( which tends to
leave those disabled and just use the BARs ) since ~forever, without
I seriously doubt that there's a lot graphics hardware made in this
century which depends on the fixed VGA registers, or even has them
enabled on powerup.
We should probably drop the arbiter requirement and just let X
configure whatever it finds.
