SubjectRe: [PATCH] smsc-ircc2: Add PnP support.
mc> try to do an "echo auto > /sys/bus/pnp/device_number/resources"

I tried this on my Toshiba Satellite 1800-314 and the device gets IO
resources but is still disabled. echo activate > ... will enable it but
the smc-ircc2 driver still finds that the device is disabled (in
2.6.10-rc2+yesterdays BK):

nartsiss:~# cat /sys/bus/pnp/devices/00\:0a/options

nartsiss:~# dmesg|tail -5
pnp: Device 00:0a activated.
NET: Registered protocol family 23
found SMC SuperIO Chip (devid=0x5a rev=00 base=0x002e): LPC47N227
smsc_superio_flat(): IrDA not enabled
smsc_superio_flat(): fir: 0x00, sir: 0x2e8, dma: 15, irq: 0, mode: 0x02

Looks like there is also a enable/disable bit in the actual LPC device,
or maybe it needs also a fir address and/or irq?
