This is something I noticed a while back with the ESS driver. It contains
some code (the stuff which fiddles with the `SCR') which is really
specific to the ESS device on the Shark (NetBSD/arm32). If you have kernel
sources, just delete the `ess_config_addr()' function and all references
to it from the file sys/dev/isa/ess.c.

If that solves your problem, send-pr(1) it so it gets fixed properly.
