Disable write buffering on the Toshiba ToPIC95 if it is enabled by somebody (it
is not supposed to be a power-on default according to the datasheet).  On the
ToPIC95, practically no 32-bit Cardbus card will work under heavy load without
locking up the whole system if this is left enabled.  I tried about a dozen.
It does not affect 16-bit cards.  This is similar to the O2 bugs in early
controller revisions it seems.  Originally posted to
