It's basically really just a fixed address memory space of a certain
fixed size that needs to be kept free by the resource allocator, very
similar to the way it needs to be done for the IOAPIC and Local APIC.

Since the PCIe BAR is part of the northbridge, I tried to tell the
resource allocator to do this in the northbridge.c code, but I couldn't
seem to figure out a way to make the (old) allocator honor it.
