This is easy to change.

It should. However, right now there's lots of things that NEWCARD
does that are kinda bogus...
Shouldn't we be doing the PnP BIOS recognition algorithms on the ROM
area and not allowing any one to allocate the ROM area? How possible
is that? IIRC from my reading of this stuff it should be really
simple to add.
We should be using the SMAP information. However, I get the impression
that if the CardBus bridge is working properly we can actually put the
attribute ROM in PCI space, which is much better than rummaging for holes
in the 640-1M range.
