The changes needed are small IMHO. The big problem wa the pci_dma_mask
not being pci_dma_mask_bit(foo) - a minor oversight we can fix in 2.5 without
breaking anything else.

It can even default to 32 for non DAC cards.

We will also have to address those cards that have 28/30/31 bit limits (yes
they exist) when we start doing direct I/O for 32bits of memory - one reason
I'm very wary of Jens patch ever being in 2.4
