I have checked with the hardware engineer. He said the transactions have some
bits to indicate whether the address is 32-bit or 64-bit. The device will respond
only when the 64-bit address transactions is in the BAR3 range.

So I think, if I clear the resource corresponding to BAR3, the 64-bit window of the
downport is empty. There will be no 64-bit address transaction sent to the device.
