Ummm, you can use bus_set_resource() in the driver to do this (I've
done it before).  bus_set_resource() should return 0 to indicate
success.  bus_alloc_resource should then succeed.  There may be one
other step to do as well to make this work, but I'm not sure if it is
an internal convention or actually required.  The pci bus code does a
resource_list_add for each of the resources the child uses, but I
think that's an internal thing to the pci bus (that other busses do
also).
