Nod.

There is a chip table in the bttv driver giving which base register matches
what PCI id, and the code to walk the busses to find it. Perhaps that should
be extracted into a shared file and a flag set added (MTRR etc)
(drivers/char/bttv.c)

I've only got S3 databooks here to check on the mmio register spaces. Cirrus
Logic pdfs are on www.cirrus.com. Thats half of the worlds video cards covered
