BARs of the same device can very well share a page in the common
case, can't they? (There may be reasons, like things getting too
complicated, for not actually honoring this, but then the
description should say so imo.)

Throughout the description and in the title I think you would
better say "memory BAR".

Doesn't this need adjustments to the calculation of the MMIO
hole size higher up in the function?

Also, as per a few lines up, perhaps

        if ( resource == &mem_resource)
