    SubjectPATCH: sonypi wrongly claims ownership of ISA and ACPI bridges
    Hi Stelian,

    Your sonypi driver claims the ownership of 2 Intel ACPI bridges and 1 ISA
    bridge.

    All 3 are used in standard Intel chipsets, not just in Sony VAIOs.

    Please do not use them, it confuses the hell out of the autoprobing and
    automatic PCI driver registration.

    I suggest checking up if this device has PnPBIOS entries and using them,
    or using a different method of autoprobing.

    Ciao, Marcus
