I haven't tested one, but this will soon change, when I plug in my spare 
ISDN card. In theory memory mapped IO shouldn't make any problems, when the
driver is written properly (if it runs on Alphas, most of the portabilty
problems are already solved).


See, you not only have to be a good coder to create a system like Linux,
you have to be a sneaky bastard too ;-)
