    Well, aic7xxx also works without a pci version of the card present, even
    if you compile your kernel with PCI.. I don't want to say we should change
    the driver to not work anymore if there's not agp support, but that the
    driver shouldn't try to overengineeredly do all this runtime probing unlike
    everyone else.
