As far as I could see there were TWO driver loaded trying to drive the same
piece of hardware at the same time. You can really expect trouble if this
happens and you can't take any conclusions about hardware problems.

The problem is of course with the drivers: They should not allow to be
loaded both for the same device.
IMHO, The AM53C974 driver should register the ioports and fail
initialization if it can't grab them, so the conflict would be solved. I'll
investigate what the most proper solution to avoid such things is and come
up with a patch.
