    We seem to slowly grow more uses of registers > 256, but yes it's still mostly
    non critical stuff.

    At least for the AMD GART IOMMU I would prefer if that was not done.
    It has a pci config space access in a time critical path (flush).
    And Family10h supports accessing the northbridge using mmconfig.

    I believe the tigon3 driver also does config space access frequently
    on some chips.

    Also there are still the old x86 Macs where conf1 doesn't work.
