nice! thanks for testing.
Andrew/Greg could you add the patch to your trees? attached again with a better
[PATCH] PCI: use PCBIOS as last fallback
there was a change in 2.6.17 which affected the order in which the PCI access
methods are probed. this gives regressions on some machines with broken BIOS.
the problem is that PCBIOS sometimes reports last bus wrong, leaving cardbus
non-funcational. previously those system worked fine with direct access.
the patch changes the PCI init code to have PCBIOS as last fallback, yet
the PCBIOS code still has to run first to set pcibios_last_bus to the value
reported by the BIOS. this is needed in case legacy PCI probing
(arch/i386/pci/legacy.c) is used to detect peer busses. using direct access
if available fixes the cardbus problems.
