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
