I don't really like the sprinkling of defines throughout the i386
tree to specify level triggered interrupts (eg npx on isa). Is this
the best approach, or should these drivers be reproduced in
/sys/arch/i386/mca/? Same can be said for dev/isa/com.c, dev/isa/lpt.c
This is why I ask. Updating it to bus_space isn't a problem, doing
it the Right Way could be.
