Here's the problem: the proposed patch (below) clears the struct
resource corresponding to BAR 3, but that doesn't actually disable the
BAR. It hides the BAR from Linux, so Linux will pretend it doesn't
exist, but it's still there in the hardware.

The hardware BAR 3 still contains some value (possibly zero), and if
PCI_COMMAND_MEMORY is set (which you need to do if you want to use
*any* memory BARs on the device), the device will respond to any
transactions in the BAR 3 range. Depending on the topology and all
the other BAR and window assignments, this may cause address

+static void quirk_hisi_fixup_np_bar(struct pci_dev *pdev)
+ struct resource *r = &pdev->resource[3];
+ r->start = 0;
+ r->end = 0;
+ r->flags = 0;
+ pci_info(pdev, "Disabling invalid BAR 3\n");
