Ok, the rtc one was different - it's due to the objtool checks.  Not
related to the ISA issue.

The others (the "warning: cast to pointer from integer" ones) are all
due to ISA, afaik.

I actually tried to find a picture of a Racal NI6510 card just to show
you guys what kinds of drivers we're talking about that got enabled. I
found a google books snipet from PC mag 1993 instead.

That piece of old-timey engineering sold for $239 USD, and it lost in
a benchmark to an ne2000 card. We're talking 10MB ethernet only,
because this was before people used fast ethernet, and the competition
was still often 10base2/BNC.

We're talking stone-age technology. We really don't want to enable it.
