Can we safely remove things like "isa* at pceb" from the GENERIC config
file for i386?  Also the "eisa* at pceb" and such?

Will this cause a problem?  If not, can we remove them from the
1.5-release as well?  I've several machine which will not boot stock 1.5,
and I can't use them for that exact reason.  It seems other people have
hit this problem, too.

Can we modify the GENERIC config for i386 to not attach eisa and isa off
the pci bus?
