Mmm, what do you mean by a pci quirk ?

Anyway, i did that from pcibios_fixup, as well as blocking all pci
writes to device 0 on both buses and reads to all functions of device 0
on both bus, except function 0, for which i allow reads of the first 15
bytes, and return 0 for the others, as i am told i should do by the
hardware guys.

This works fine for the fbdev, but X is not at all happy with it, well,
it seems to work, but there is nothing outputed on the screen :(, but
that is something i probably have to solve with XFree86.

So, yes, that does help with XFree86, altough i get a strange message i
have to search the origin for :

  (WW) ****INVALID IO ALLOCATION**** b: 0x1000 e:0x10ff correcting

Also, with voodoo 3 cards, the tdfx driver dies with :

  (EE) TDFX(0): No valid PIO address in PCI config space

But Radeon works.
