OK, so that's not how everyone else has done these isolated
controllers...  to be honest I'm not convinced that this is something
worth worrying about for AC'97 - the clocking is fixed in the spec
unless you're being fancy and the chances of anyone being fancy are
minimal these days.  It's probably more likely to make life miserable
for people trying to get AC'97 working than anything else.

But like I say the big thing is a comprehensible changelog.
