I was thinking of the drivers that are for ISA cards but don't actually
use the isa_register_driver() function. If you have to change the driver
to a platform driver, you are right.

The other point is that you are probably using inb/outb operations,
which I'm trying to provide only on ISA/PCMCIA/PCI based systems in
the future. Once I finish that work, you will also need to depend on
HAS_IOPORT (which currently means something else).
