The configure help for the Winbond SuperIO states:

"Saying Y here enables some probes for Super-IO chipsets in order to
find out things like base addresses, IRQ lines and DMA channels. It
is safe to say N."

Enabling this allows me to mount both VFAT and EXT2 in 11pre3, it
appears it should no longer be marked "Experimental" or "Safe to say No"
in the case of Zipdrives at least.

Dunno what time it is over there but could you give this a try when you
get a chance? My port is still misdetected but at least I didn't have to
fsck this time...;=)
