"Using the hardware to its fullest potential" should probably be called the 
preferred option. I mean, what's the fun of playing with this old hardware 
if we're not going to use it fully? :)

So as submitted (or nothing at all but if we suppose the driver will be 
seeing practical use, guarding against that PIIX4 seems best) is nicest I feel.

I've had to remove the jazz16 again for a bit and I haven't tested an 
allocation failure yet. That looks to be an "obvious fix" though. Now all we 
need is a PnP maintainer...
