Use bus_alloc_resources instead of using bus_alloc_resource...
Maybe use pci_enable_busmaster and friends instead of using
pci_write_config...  (In the future for suspend/resume, I would hope
our pci layer would save the state, which it might not if you write
directly to the config registers.)

You should also use bus_get_dma_tag for getting the parent tag when
creating your own tag w/ bus_dma_tag_create...

Can't think of any others right now...
