I can't think of a good example off the top of my head, but I don't
see why it wouldn't be possible to have several multiple pci busses,
each with an isa bus on them.
(Um, a backplane-based parallel-esque machine?)
I'm pretty sure if I popped a couple of PCI-to-ISA bridge cards in
my PowerMac 7500 (with a G3 card, running the macppc port), I'd want
them both recognized separately, and I don't think I'm unreasonable
to expect that.
No matter what, pinning things down in an INSTALL or GENERIC kernel
is kind of against standard practice...
