So we are talking about the same thing. Logically speaking, ISA devices are
behind the ISA-PCI bridge, so the parent would be the bridge, right?
Right. system_memory -> pci_address_space() -> isa_address_space() ->
various vga areas.

This is stdvga.
Don't see the call to vga_init() in that path (this is what passes
isa_address_space() to the vga core).
I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
signature is too narrow to contain.
