Since when?  Did you apply an unsupported patch?  I haven't seen
anything announcing bus-master bounce buffers in the official NetBSD

Inverts the order according to who?  What addresses are the cards at?
I think the only way to guarantee their order *is* to hardwire their
order.  Aside from that, I don't know of any guarantees about which
order they'll probe in.  In fact, I believe the order will potentially
change from version to version, as the autoconfig code changes.

Am I wrong in these assumptions?
