I am fixing the cy.c code right now and I hope to be done with it
soon.  And I an not getting paid for it. I don't even have a card to
test my changes.  I don't think I'll ever use this driver.  I was 
planning to send it back to the author when I was done.  Please try 
to be fair here:

1. The code is not KNF. In fact parts of it is indented with 4 spaces, 
   parts of it with 2.
2. It needs to be split up in cy_isa.c and cy_pci.c.
3. It produces compiler warnings with gcc -Wall.

If the code did not have the 3 problems mentioned above I would have
personally committed it.
