Yeah, recent 2.4 kernels do indeed have some sort of ISA Plug'n'Pray
support in kernelspace. I keep forgetting that, because I mostly run
uniprocessor systems, and therefore mostly stick to 2.2.x -- and all
my ISA devices have PnP emphatically disabled, anyway.
So, how well _is_ ISA Plug'n'Pray support working in 2.4? Mind you, I
basically don't have any faith in it, regardless of who wrote the
support software or where it runs, because it's a horrid ad-hoc kludge
(from Microsoft Corporation, no less) to a hardware bus never designed
to do such things.
