Just a thing. The SB should have an MPU-401 interface. The MPU-401 should
default to I/O address 0x330. The buslogic is at 0x330.
When the kernel is doing I/O on 0x330 with which device is it talking ?
The MPU-401 may not be initialized and activated by kernel, but the
hardware is still there, so the 0x330 I/O port is owned by two devices. I
suggest you to change MPU or buslogic I/O address.
Of course, as usual (and usually for that matter :) I (can be) wrong, but
try this thing before doing anything else.
