The device ID is checked, but this checking occurs during the driver's
probe function, when it calls pnp_request_card_device. This is needed
in order for us to properly deal with multidevice cards, especially in
ALSA. If possibly, I'd like to see the devices in these cards be
handled individually in 2.7 but note that doing so would require
changes to some drivers and subsystems. The current system works well
for 2.6.

Because of these factors, and the fact that pnp_device_id is also used,
I think that we have to include all of the IDs in the pnpidmap. This
would include both the card id and the individual device IDs on each
card. pnp_device_id can use the isapnp card device ids in addition to
the ids reported by the pnpbios.

Thanks,
Adam
