    I received and applied your patches. I had to compile with ACPI
    disabled because 3.3-rc2 now reports a resource conflict between the
    WDAT structure (that we report for Microsoft Windows watchdog timer
    support) and the TCO watchdog portion of lpc_ich:

    ACPI Warning: 0x00000460-0x0000047f SystemIO conflicts with
    Region \PMIO 1 (20120111/utaddress-251)
    ACPI: If an ACPI driver is available for this device, you should use
    it instead of the native driver
    lpc_ich: probe of 0000:00:1f.0 failed with error -16

    We may have to submit a driver in the future to utilize the WDAT
    ACPI table, but that's another topic.

    Do you think it's worth modifying lcp_ich to register all of the
    resources that it can and only populate the mfd_cells that have
    all of their required resources? That would prevent the entire
    driver from bombing out in situations like this. I can't imagine
    our BIOS is the only one implementing the WDAT table.

    Anyway, after compiling without ACPI the lpc_ich driver registered
    as expected and the gpio-ich and iTCO_wdt drivers detected and
    configured their associated resources. I have verified that the
    watchdog timer still works as expected. I need to track down some
    other hardware to properly test the GPIO.
