That's all true and, in fact, I had run into a compiler problem some
time ago. However, even then I was able to simply rearrange my C
routine a bit and then the compiler was happy.
Having pci-cardbus support on mips is kind of cool. Running wireless
cards off of it is even better. Not being able to compile the drivers
because of io.h isn't.
