I think the first one looks good.

I'm curious about the second.  Why did you add the IORESOURCE_MEM
test?  That's doesn't affect the "start =" piece because
IORESOURCE_MEM is always set if IORESOURCE_MEM_64 is set.

But it does affect the "end =" part.  Previously we limited all I/O
and 32-bit mem BARs to the low 4GB.  This patch makes it so we limit
32-bit mem BARs to the low 4GB, but we don't limit I/O BARs.  But I/O
BARs can only have 32 bits of address, so it seems like we should
limit them the same way as 32-bit mem BARs.  So I expected something
like this:

    if (res->flags & IORESOURCE_MEM_64) {
        start = (resource_size_t) (1ULL << 32);
        end = PCI_MAX_RESOURCE;
    } else {
        start = 0;
        end = PCI_MAX_RESOURCE_32;
