SubjectRe: [PATCH] Making TI bridges work with kernel PCMCIA
Hi, Benjamin!

Yes, I found it in arch/ppc/kernel/pci.c, function pcibios_fixup_cardbus.

I believe it should be safe to remove that "fixup" once my patch is
applied. There is no reason to believe that BIOS or OpenFirmware know
better than the Linux kernel how to route interrupts on PCMCIA bridges.

I believe that relying on proprietary firmware (i.e BIOS) or on power-on
defaults is only justified when we have insufficient information how to
initialize the chip. That's not the case for TI bridges.

By the way, I'll appreciate if somebody applies my patch, removes the PPC
fixup and tests it on PPC. I'm 99% sure that it will work, but still it
will be good to know for sure.
