    Alan, I replied to you a few weeks ago (pre20 times) when you asked me why
    I was sending you this patch. (perhaps you didn't receive my email). What I
    observed was that my netraid card had a 0xXXXX8 base address and the patch
    aligned that address to 16 bytes :

    |Bus 0, device 2, function 1:
    | Unknown class: Intel OEM MegaRAID Controller (rev 5).
    | Medium devsel. Fast back-to-back capable. BIST capable. IRQ 10. Master
    Capable. Latency=64.
    | Prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xf0000000 [0xf0000008].

    as you see, the board is found at 0xf0000008, but used aligned to 0xf0000000.

    my server currently works with that patch, but I'm sure it won't boot anymore
    if I apply this 2.2.18pre25 alone.

    just in case, here it is again.
