    Would this 8237 be something on the ISA card, or something on
    the old pc mainboards? I'm wondering if we can safely ignore
    this issue altogether here...

    Yes, that's in the number of address lines going to the isa card.
    We work around that one by having an iommu arena from 8M to 16M
    and forcing all ISA traffic to go through there.
