I fixed this for myself by creating a custom dsdt override where I moved the
following resource from _CRS of Device PCI0 (PNP0A03) to that of Device SYSR

IO (Decode16,
    0x4000,             // Range Minimum
    0x4000,             // Range Maximum
    0x01,               // Alignment
    0x42,               // Length

Maybe this could help other people with similarly broken BIOSes.
I hope that not too many systems with that hardware survived to these days,
because it seems that almost all of them shared a lot of common bugs in their 
(and good luck getting any fixes for those systems from their vendors now).
