SubjectRe: ISA slot detection on PCI systems?

What about CONFIG_BLK_DEV_FD, CONFIG_SERIAL and CONFIG_PARPORT_PC? ISA
devices of this kind are still often present in systems even if no ISA
slots exist. Actually CONFIG_BLK_DEV_FD is purely ISA and it uses ISA DMA
(so it requires kernel/dma.c, which is ISA-only).

An example of such a system stands next to me now -- no ISA slots but all
of the above devices.
