I have a window socket on a PCI bridge which is far from the root and
doesn't have an ISA bridge anywhere near it -- hence doesn't see cycles
for the whole address space.

It _must_ use memory in the range 0xf5000000-0xf50fffff and I/O in the
range 0x2000-0x2fff, or it doesn't even get to see the PCI transactions.
Currently this is done by an evil hack -- I configure cardmgr
accordingly, and also see the 'membase' and 'isa_setup' module
parameters in Marcelo's drivers/pcmcia/i82092.c.
