"Out of addressable range" would be handled by bounce buffer,
and the real problem is whether the DMA address for bus-master devices
is physical address (like on i386) or not.

I guess only isadma by 8237 DMA controllers works
(higher address may be handled by the chipset?),
but all bus-master devices on ISA would have trouble.
