SubjectRe: [RFT] Port 0x80 I/O speed
I have been having a fun time testing this on my AMD64x2 system.

Since out's to port 80 hang the system hard after a while, I can run a
test just after booting, but the next run will typically hang it.

I did also test two ports thought to be unused. They do *not* hang the
system. Thus apparently there is some device responding to port 80!

Running the (slightly modified to test 3 ports instead of just port 80)
test when the CPU is running at 800 MHz, here's what I get for port 80
and port ec and port ef.

port 80: cycles: out 1430, in 792
port ef: cycles: out 1431, in 1378
port ec: cycles: out 1432, in 1372

[Note: port 80, when it doesn't hang, which is very often, responds to a
read twice as fast as a port which is "not there". Typically though,
the second time I run the test, the system freezes solid. Seems like
evidence of a present device, not a missing one. Also, port 80 responds
when booted with acpi=off, but never seems to hang - sounds like ACPI
causes it to be active in some way]
