Okay.  Back at work, with a known-good 3c589, *and* with the `pcic0 at
isa? port 0x320' commented out,' the CardBus config, plus PCIBIOS
patches, works regardless of whether the Phoenix NoteBios `PnP OS' is
set to `yes' or `no'. And with and without Soren's patch.

I'm guessing my problems were with the pcic0 legacy-comatiblity ports
being touched, but it's just a guess.  Configuring pcic0 does seem to
clobber the PCI IRQ on the Cardbus bridge, even if the `non-PnP' BIOs
setting set it up.  Seems consistent, anyway.

So when can we get those i386 PCIBIOS patches into the tree as the
approved MD-pci-setup for i386?
