Ok, I believe I've figured out what the root cause of things
failing is here.

I've added a couple of pr_info-s to kernel/resource.c __find_resource()
like this:

                pr_info("__find_resource() trying 0x%llx - 0x%llx\n", tmp.start, tmp.end);
                if (tmp.end < tmp.start)
                        goto next;

                resource_clip(&tmp, constraint->min, constraint->max);
                pr_info("__find_resource() after clip + arch-reserv 0x%llx - 0x%llx\n", tmp.start, tmp.end);

And the following (relevant) messages get logged by these 2 pr_info-s
when trying to allocate a resource for the unassigned IOMEM BAR
of the I2C controller on the troublesome laptops:

[    1.262423] resource: allocate_resource root [mem 0x65400000-0xbfffffff window] new [mem size 0x00001000 64bit] size 0x1000 min 0x65400000 max 0xbfffffff align 0x1000
[    1.262426] resource: __find_resource() trying 0x65400000 - 0x6fffffff
[    1.262428] resource: __find_resource() after clip + arch-reserv 0xd0000000 - 0x6fffffff
[    1.262543] resource: __find_resource() trying 0x8122d000 - 0x8122efff
[    1.262544] resource: __find_resource() after clip + arch-reserv 0xd0000000 - 0x8122efff

Notice that the regions start at 0xd0000000 rather then their original start
address after these 2 calls:

                resource_clip(&tmp, constraint->min, constraint->max);

I believe that this is caused by the arch_remove_reservations call,
which applies e820 reservations and the e820 table has the following:

[    0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x000000004bc50000-0x00000000cfffffff] reserved

So the e820 table is basically reserving the entire main PCI bus iomem
window, which runs from 0x65400000-0xbfffffff :

[    0.609979] pci_bus 0000:00: root bus resource [io  0x0000-0x0cf7 window]
[    0.609983] pci_bus 0000:00: root bus resource [io  0x0d00-0xffff window]
[    0.609986] pci_bus 0000:00: root bus resource [mem 0x000a0000-0x000bffff window]
[    0.609988] pci_bus 0000:00: root bus resource [mem 0x65400000-0xbfffffff window]
[    0.609991] pci_bus 0000:00: root bus resource [bus 00-fe]

One way of fixing this would be to check CRS provided PCI root bridge windows
vs e820 reservations and remove (carve out) the PCI root bridge iomem windows
from any e820 reservations. Probably with some warning about the firmware
being buggy.   I'm not sure if this won't cause issues else where though.

So before I spend time on trying to code something like this, any other
ideas / suggestions how to fix this ?
