Yet another patch is laying here almost two years without any attention:
ftp://ftp.linux-mips.org/pub/linux/mips/people/ladis/eisa.diff

It is against some ancient 2.4 kernel (do we still about it?) and at least
shows how to use common 8259A code to handle interrupts. Perhaps we
could do the same in 2.6 and use new EISA code in drivers/eisa ?
