SubjectRe: Patch to make ymfpci legacy address 16 bits
Hi, Jeff!

I just wanted to make sure that you don't expect any problems if we go
this way.

I see. It's not a pure PCI driver. I wonder what happens if some other
driver becomes "impure" e.g. by adding PCMCIA support.

First part (writing the patch) is done:

http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/linux/trident_pm.diff

I only know that it compiles. I have no hardware I can test it on. Please
don't apply until tested!
