I found it listed in
making me believe this bug was fixed in version 2.6.15, and thus
before 2.6.18.  I guess we need to keep looking.  This is the patch in question:

      [PATCH] i2o: Do not disable pci device when it's in use
      When dpt_i2o is loaded first, i2o being loaded would cause it to call
      pci_device_disable, thus breaking dpt_i2o's use of the device.  Based on
      similar usage of pci_disable_device in other drivers.

Perhaps it is enough to edit /target/etc/modules and append this:


It will have to be tested. :)

Happy hacking,
