Subject[PATCH 1/2] powerpc/5200: Fix size to request_mem_region() call
The Bestcomm driver requests a memory region larger than the one
described in the device tree. This is due to an extra undocumented field
in the bestcomm register structure. This hasn't been a problem up to
now, but there is a patch pending to make the DT platform_bus support
code use platform_device_add() which tightens the rules and provides
extra checks for drivers to stay within the specified register regions.

Alternately, I could have removed the extra field from the structure,
but I'm not sure if it is still needed for resume to work. Better be
safe and leave it in.
