    Indeed, I missed that.

    Yes, it would be nice to have something like this.

    Another workaround also seems to be possible - for ISA devices
    use mask other than 0x00ffffff _only_ if we don't have working
    IOMMU. This doesn't help to get older Miatas work with such
    type of ISA cards though...
