I'm curious how the vga driver will be affected.
I have a few old systems still in production that run console only that 
use ISA video cards.
The vga driver is a special case and would remain unchanged for now (it 
initializes very very early through the backdoor and then attaches to 
the isa bus even for PCI cards).

Do you have a patch set to test the ISA removal ?
No I haven't, work on it hasn't even started yet.
