Looks good, but I don't think we need to add any patches to the  
i82801ca, i82801db, i82801dbm, or i82801er. The southbridge code for  
these should not be used, and should be
dropped. Everyone should be using the i82801xx code for all ICH's. I  
propose we drop that
code now that the i82801xx is stable, so cool people like Ed do not  
waste their time on
it :-)

Thanks - Joe
