My memory-mapped Canon card is a 8-bit ISA card so it can't do 16-bit I/O by
definition. Don't know if there are any 16-bit memory-mapped cards.

Probably not. Looks like this code creates more problems that it solves.
I'll revert to the original approach.

I'll leave this to patch 77. I guess that it will work properly without
waiting for CSR_GATED_53C80_IRQ.
