one of the things Justin added was a driver-specific filter function.
Justin says that's a better way to detect mappings that oculd tickle
driver bugs. VLB buslogic boards were given as a specific example; it
sounds plausible to me. (I'd assume that if NetBSD added this, the
filter argument would be NULL in almost all cases).
Does that count as concrete justification -- at least if the
filter-function works without switching to a callback-based model?
