Turning off master abort-forwarding is a step backwards.  A step forward
is to implement proper PCI exception handling.  That is not to say that
we should not take that backwards step for the short term, but let us
properly understand this bug, first.  Looks to me like there is a crash
in Cardbus_mapreg_unmap().  Previously, we had _map()'d the region.
Why the crash?
