That is actually a really good question.  I know that with some recent
BIOSes if I enabled allocating 64-bit addresses to BARs, the BAR would
actually be mapped outside of the range of /dev/mem.  From a quick glance
at libpciaccess, I don't think that it handles this case.  A specific
mechanism for allowing mmaping of BARs would be useful, I think.
