Limiting this to the "already enabled" case may not be enough:
Devices needed for guest booting may need them to be enabled
even if prior to BAR assignment they were turned off. That's
what a BIOS would typically do, too. I've seen quite a few
BIOS setups actually where one could chose whether the BIOS
would do so just for what it recognized as boot devices, or
for all of them.
