Just to keep it small for .configs without floppy, PS/2 etc. I can
remove it.

Do you think a device_type fdc, i8042 or ipmi will appear outside an isa

Why all this complexity? Its there mainly to match a class of boards,
not to match a specific device configuration.

Thats how it may look finally, currently only compile tested.

int check_legacy_ioport(unsigned long base_port)
        struct device_node *parent, *np = NULL;
        int ret = -ENODEV;

        switch(base_port) {
        case I8042_DATA_REG:
                np = of_find_node_by_type(NULL, "8042");
        case FDC_BASE: /* FDC1 */
                np = of_find_node_by_type(NULL, "fdc");
        case 0xca2:
        case 0xca9:
        case 0xe4:
                np = of_find_node_by_type(NULL, "ipmi");
        case _PIDXR:
        case _PNPWRP:
        case PNPBIOS_BASE:
                /* implement me */
        if (np) {
                parent = of_get_parent(np);
                if (parent) {
                        ret = strcmp(parent->type, "isa");
        return ret;
