    The shouldnt be. We use two kinds of delays inb_p/outb_p generate an
    extra I/O cycle on the ISA bus. udelay precomputes timing according to the
    CPU. Thus for example the MMX pentium does loops far faster than the pentium
    but the timing adjusts accordingly.

    You might also want to check that IRQ 11 isnt assigned to a PCI bus slot
    (even an unused one).
