HEADS UP: Dropping ISA & EISA support

Just to clarify:
After 2.2 has been branched (end of January), we'll start dropping
support for _all_ ISA and EISA cards, not just the NICs.
We can't drop ISA support completely of course because of things like
PS/2 (atkbdc(4), ...), vga(4) and so on but support for everything
involving a physical ISA card being plugged into a physical ISA slot is
planned to be nuked.
A list of ISA drivers is on the isa(4) manual page, but I guess you know
if there are ISA slots in your box and whether you use them.
Please speak up if you think that this is not a good idea. :)
