Re: isapnp probe is slow

The isapnp probe on boot is really slow. I suspect that isapnp is not
relevant for systems made in the last 5 years, because ISA and EISA went
the way of the dodo. Is isapnp necessary for any modern hardware?

Would disabling isapnp based on the age of the system make sense?
Alternatively, what other ways are there to speed it up?

        Other than trying to put it on a separate thread? (which is a huge
        can I worms I suspect best left nailed shut)...
