Now this might be a dumb question but how to hurd drivers interact
with the PCI layer,
they all just bang on it directly?
It just seems lazy to add a direct to hw code again in userspace when
clearly the kernel
should be able for it, not that I really mind, I'm just hoping other
OSes don't get this lazy,
which marking this code as generic x86 might make them.
