    David and others, your comments are welcome however. The patch probably 
needs some more trimming before it can be considered a pure fix. It has been 
somewhat tested now on EISA (and once more on PCI) board, and as a result of 
testing another one, EISA specific error was reported, fix for which I'm going 
to publish for testing RSN.

WBR, Sergei
