Thanks to Maciej, I found the problem. The device apparently does not
always react in time for the sb1250 PCI host. Changing TrdyTimeout to
0xff fixes the problem for the 32bit PCI slots. I need to find the
equivalent register on the SP1011 bridge to fix the problem for the
64bit PCI slots. Patch attached.
goa is a state of mind
