Thanks for the feedback, what do you think of the following?

Could the screech possibly be caused by that tight loop where we try and
push a command through in write_seq? Apparently its possible for a DMA
completion to occur whilst that is happening (should the command be
aborted?) Right at that moment a DMA completion interrupt also gets
generated i believe, so would completing the command we were trying to
send bork things somewhat? Am i right in thinking that we are DMAing
garbage during that screeching noise?

Yes i am clutching at straws here ;)

As an aside, i noticed in the documentation, they specify that if dmasize
is N we should send N to iobase+4 and not N-1 like an i8237.
