    Of course it is critical :-).

    Andre what do you think?

    And one more thing in ide-pci.c:ide_setup_pci_device() after explicitly
    enabling device's IOs we may need to update dev->resource and we don't
    do this (we place chipset in native mode so i.e. on VIA base addresses
    are just showing up). How to update them?
