Yes, various PC/104 compatible boards can be connected to the ISA bus on
such systems (via PC/104 connector). I personally do only care about the
CAN devices (as maintainer).

What should the PLAT_GRANDEGGER_PC104_ATOM be good for? If I replace
isa_register_driver() with platform_driver_register(), like the serial
8250 driver does, HAS_IOMEM should be just fine. This would then also
avoid the 64-bit trouble expected with old ISA drivers (enabled via
ISA). Or have I missed something?

Wolfgang.
