there are about 70 bus->subordinate reference and 40 bus->secondary reference.

could try to update them in following patch set.

busn alloc will try to solve x-y may need big range than [a,b], it
will extend top of b and parents of bus a.
instead of just b+1 blindly.

and will have more strict checking to avoid overlapping.

Using busn_res to track and allocate busn range, by put them in the
resource tree could reuse resource allocating code.
