    Drivers for hardware with partial PCI decoding need to at least add a
    call to pci_remove_rom() to remove the rom attribute from sysfs. I
    don't know which hardware has this problem or even if any hardware with
    a Linux driver has this problem. If anyone is maintainer for a driver
    like this, please let me know and I can add the call to

    Also, I believe the i386 quirk should also be applied to the x86_64
    arch. I don't have the hardware and I don't know enough about the boot
    aequence in 64 bits to do the right thing with a guess. The code is not
    broken for x86_64, it just may not pick up the right ROM image on that
