I'm not sure what you mean by own board handler?

AFAIK, the only platform specific code is under arch/x86/platform/* but we
don't have such thing for Lynxpoint and it should not be needed as we can
enumerate the devices from ACPI.

Well, it's a DMA request line so we thought that IORESOURCE_DMA would suit
fine there and the drivers that use these are well aware of their usage.
Not sure about IORESOURCE_IO, it has also specific meaning and I don't
think DMA request lines fit there either :-(
