Cool that posting helped me understand why I need wbflush, so the next
question is, can a wbflush() in the wrong place do any harm (apart from a
performance slowdown), and why in the dec_esp.c driver does the wbflush
defined not use <asm/wbflush.h> but defines its own wbflush macro for the
IOASIC decstations, and it is safe to use asm/wbflush.h in its place ..?

Dave.
