Is there any standard way to solve this without a typedef? I added 
el3_dev_fill() function which fills that card type value according to a 
parameter passed to it. "int" could be used instead and "#define EL3_ISA 
0", "#define EL3_PNP 1" - but I think that's ugly.

OK, looks like the driver will need some more patches.

I don't know anything about this, maybe in next patch.

EL3_MAX_CARDS is also used as a parameter to isa_register_driver(). The irq[] 
array (see below) is limited to 8 devices too. And finally, the card itself 
can use one of 8 different IRQs (3,5,7,2/9,10,11,12,15). So I think that it's 
not worth adding more code to support more cards.
The original driver will do bad things with more than 8 cards too - read 
beyond the end of irq[] array.
