Can you please add some explanation to the kernel documentation, what
this parameter does and why it helps?

kernel-parameters.txt says only:

        allowdma0 [ISAPNP]

pnp.txt says:

also there are a series of kernel parameters:
pnp_reserve_irq=irq1[,irq2] ....
pnp_reserve_dma=dma1[,dma2] ....
pnp_reserve_io=io1,size1[,io2,size2] ....
pnp_reserve_mem=mem1,size1[,mem2,size2] ....
