    Do correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe this will do. The index
    for the resources is preserved simply due to the list position after the
    DISABLED thing but here the list is reshuffled.

    So say I have an ISAPnP device with 2 port resources the second of which
    I force to manual setting through sysfs (ie, AUTO is cleared). This API
    would then delete the first port resource after which the second port
    resource is the first entry in the list which would make for example
    isapnp_set_resource() program it into hardware index 1, no?

    This function would appear to be unimplementable now? It's called from
    pnp_assign_resources() and pnp_disable_dev().

    (stopped review there, since it seems this needs to either change or you
    need to slap some sense into me first)

    Rene.
