Ooops, forget it. It cannot be selected on x86. I was a bit distracted when
I wrote that, sorry.

I would find it better if probe() failed if no irq is specified, printing a
message that tells the user to setup his data correctly before loading the
driver. A user _has_ to setup irq, if there is none, he still has to set
irq=UIO_IRQ_NONE. For that matter, 'not specified' and 'not found' is both
the same bad thing.
