right now, none of the ISA interrupts are working on that machine,
probably because I'm missing some IRQ routing setup. The workaround is
there to get serial console working in userspace.

no other board MIPS board has EISA behind PCI afaik. So this is a new

it would help, if you would try to understand the stuff first. Just read
the EISA code...

could you try to understand the issue please ? I could leave the i8259
code alone and everything will work as before. Only the entries for
the PIC would be missing in /proc/iomem (which I could kludge around
by adding them to the pcit/pcimt resource list). Every other platform 
won't see a difference, because no other platform needs to request the
PCI IO space starting at 0x0000. 

I've checked the platform device code, and it uses insert_region() like
my proposed change for i8259. So I'm pretty sure, that's the way to
