    As mentioned for amplc_dio200 and amplc_pc236, the detach() routine
    ought to check thisboard->bustype although the original code and the
    patched version should work fine as dev->iobase will be 0 on failure.

    I'll submit a patch later to check thisboard->bustype in the detach()
    routine for robustness.
