Ask Paolo. :-) For me it's only important to have a MMIO device in the
proper address range.

Interesting. I can't find this discussion in the list archive. Do you suggest to
create EBusDevices for all ISA devices (serial, parallel, keyboard,
floppy) used in sun4u, or only for m48t59?
What would be the advantage of using EBusDevice over ISADevice?
