The problem was that the BIOS was not told not to use IRQ 10 for PNP,
since the card is an old ISA one, no PNP.

I have some weird problems with my scanner (Microtek E3, ss0) now
though... when I try to scsictl it, it's recognized as a bus, not as a
device, because the first ioctl (SCIOCIDENTIFY) fails (Inappropriate
ioctl). Why does that happen?
