Ok, this may allow us to detect the i82365 device. However, yenta_socket
is already controlling it, and it has disabled the legacy port access.

Now, i82365 initialises, and PNP tells it that we have this device. PNP
tries to activate it. This is where we are probably going wrong.

I think we need some way for yenta to tell the PNP subsystem to ignore
the device that yenta is controlling.

As far as check_region goes - fixing it looks like it'll be fairly
disgusting. The probing seems to be pretty complex, and I don't have
the hardware to test against. So, until someone who cares about it
puts the work in, I'm not touching that part of it. 8)
