    Subject[PATCH] PnP 3c509

    I tried to change the 3c509 driver to use
    the kernel ISA PnP functions. This was tested
    with two PnP 3c509b cards. The driver can recognise
    them with every combination of PnP enabled/disabled
    settings. The driver registers PnP enabled
    cards first, it may or may not be better for
    i/o and irq resource management. If you don't
    like the order in which the cards are recognised,
    you can use the "nopnp=1" option to use the old
    behaviour. It seems that this order is the same
    if all of them are PnP or all of them are non-PnP.

    If you use this option first, and change your mind,
    the driver correctly re-wakes the cards in PnP mode
    after rmmod/insmod without the nopnp=1 option.

    If the cards are in PnP mode, it is possible
    (and is very likely) that they use i/o ports and
    irq lines different from what is set in the eeprom.
