Don't use PNP detection by default yet.  We have some PNP and BIOS issues
to work out first.

Sample problem on a Toshiba Portege 4000: the SMCf010 device is handed off
disabled.  We assign I/O ports originally assigned to the SMCf010 to a
PCMCIA device instead.  We enable the SMCf010, configuring it to use
disjoint ports, but _SRS doesn't work correctly, so the device doesn't
