The bit 16 and up is the PCI bus number. The parisc PCI services use
the bus number to index into the corresponding bus services.

The driver should be using 0x0001ff00 when talking to I/O port
space services (ie inb/outb).

Maybe I should take a look at the request_region() call and see what's
up there...It should be a NOP since we trust firmware to uniquely
assign I/O Port and MMIO address space (and I haven't seen any problems
where it doesn't on any platform).

bummer...we'll get em working...
