It seems happy. But the Mac isn't (level triggered Nubus interrupts as 
soon as the NS8390 chip is probed). It disables the card interrupt in
the attempt to escape the interrupt flood. 

Add code to acknowledge and clear the card interrupt on the card. Maybe 
it's enough to tweak the probe code to disable the interrupt in the 
8390 before anything else is done to the chip.
