So I'm going to revert these unless I get

 (a) a good reason for them

 (b) patches to get rid of the incessant warnings these cause.

Most of the ISA drivers are not 64-bit safe. They give compiler
warnings, and they will definitely simply not work. So just blindly
enabling that shit is not the answer.

We've never needed this before, why do we need it now?
