Yeah, I just checked and the highest used IOMEM window ends at
0x811300ff leaving plenty of space after it for the 2 new windows.

I agree that this seems to be the most likely issue. I've build
a Fedora kernel pkg with some extra debugging added for the reporter
to be test.  Since I'm reliant on a debug cycle where I provide
a kernel and then the reporter comes back with a new debug,
and then rince-repeat it might be a while before I get back to you
on this.  Hopefully when I do get back I will have figured out
what the problem is.

(and in case it was not clear yet the RFC patch which started this
discussion clearly is bogus and can be considered dropped).

That is not unexpected, pci_bus_alloc_resource() will first try the
pci_high region which starts at 0x100000000. But it is definitely
an interesting data point.
