Ok, that looks better. Though I might make the arg u32, which matches
the way that the address is passed to the IO functions currently.

Yep, sure thing. I copied that part "as is", and a few of the other
drivers seem to have it done this way too. No excuses though :-)

That is assigned to the "reg_offset" field of "struct ei_device"
(defined in the existing 8390.h) and that is:

     u32 *reg_offset;		/* Register mapping table */

So I can't change this.

Sure, will change it.

Thanks for the quick feedback, much appreciated.
I'll send a revised patch in 24 hours or so.

Regards
Greg
