But on the other hand why loop if you don't have to?

static int at1700_ioaddr_pattern[] __initdata = {
- 0x00, 0x04, 0x01, 0x05, 0x02, 0x06, 0x03, 0x07
+ 0x00, 0x02, 0x04, 0x06, 0x01, 0x03, 0x05, 0x07
};
...

static int __init at1700_probe1(struct net_device *dev, int ioaddr)
{
...
- for (l_i = 0; l_i < 0x09; l_i++)
- if (( pos3 & 0x07) == at1700_ioaddr_pattern[l_i])
- break;
- ioaddr = at1700_mca_probe_list[l_i];
+ ioaddr = at1700_mca_probe_list[at1700_ioaddr_pattern[pos3&7]];
...
}
