Time for NEWCARD again! Yea!

I spent last night integrating the WIP I have in my tree on my laptop to the p4 repo. When it jells more, I'll commit to -current.

I've also been putting the final touches on OLDCARD. I keep wanting to kick it into long term, low level maint mode, but issues keep coming up :-).

It looks like once the IRQ issues are settle wrt ACPI, we'll have other issues with PCI resource allocation. Already many PCI cards behind bridges do not work completely right if the BIOS doesn't assign an address. And assigning an address to them is problematical because of bridge issues. I need to think about the right way to deal soon.

Until then, I'm trying to get the ISA only and PCI I/O mapped pcmcia bridges in shape. Gives me time to think about the best way to do things.
