I understand now why it didn't work.  Memory decoding was enabled in the GMA device.  When it's detected as in conflict with system RAM it gets reallocated cleanly, but setting the BAR to 0 prevents that from happening.  Somehow I need to get the resources I want moved onto a realloc list, but I can't work out where or how...
