I see this on pcmcia ne* attachments, when the PCIC is configured to use
fewer address decode lines than are required to use a particular port
range assigned by the pcmcia code.  Solution there is to force the
address allocation range through kernel options, or reconfigure the
hardware/BIOS to let more address decode lines into the PCIC.

Maybe something similar can happen in PCI space--the IO port decode
isn't happening right?  [But I don't know anything about the ne* on pci
front-end, so this could be totally off base.]
