The IP27 PCI code as it is in CVS is incomplete or even broken - however
fixing isn't entirely trivial. The current workaround which I use - and
which due to being just an evil hack is not in CVS - to only scan the PCI
code. The problem is the firmware does a very simple setup which hurts
performance very badly, so eventually Linux will have to do a full PCI
configuration for all PCI busses.
