At least on x86-64 there are no ICH4s or PIIX4Es. Actually I think
there was one early prototype machine from Intel with ICH4, but I am willing
to ignore these. So please dont do any such things on the x86-64 version.

Also didnt ICH4 already have HPET? it might not be enabled on many
boxes, but given the chip datasheet one can write enable code to
fix that.
