    xfree86: vgaarb: fix device decoding interface to send resources type properly

    Right now, when there is more than one vide card on the machine, we're
    adopting a pessimistic approach and setting all cards to decode VGA legacy

    Some cards may want to skip the arbitration and the only way to do so is
    through pci_device_vgaarb_decodes. Therefore, send the desired kind of
    resource instead force the worst case.

    Note that xf86VGAarbiterDeviceDecodes is not being used so far by any
    open-source driver. Even so, API break.

1. ./autogen --prefix=/opt/X11R7
2. make

I just sent the fix (to xorg-devel ml) to be integrated in master branch. Thank you for quickly spotting this.

Build success, so mark it as verified.
