The only piece I am seeing, is that the irq resources that are not
hard coded are not being allocated automatically.  

The basic problem is that we don't have an irq allocator in LinuxBIOS,
We also could use a legacy address allocator as well to automatically
put these things at their legacy addresses if possible.

My latest build (still needs to be merged) I just turned off all of
the devices I didn't care about which made the irq assignment problems
go away.  It is a bad long term solution but it is ok in the short

Because that is the base configuration port.   Figuring out
what kind of paths to use for devices like this is a bit of
a challenge.  

I forget but I think there was a considerable about of infrastructure
in the super.c file you copied that probably should be moved to
a generic file some place.
