just to make sure I got it right, is the following what you suggest? 

static int ali_close_multi_channels(void)
        char temp = 0;
        struct pci_dev *pci_dev = NULL;

	pci_dev =pci_find_device(PCI_VENDOR_ID_AL,PCI_DEVICE_ID_AL_M1533,
        if (pci_dev == NULL)
                return -1;
-       temp = 0x80;
+	pci_read_config_byte(pci_dev, 0x59, temp);
+      temp &= ~0x80;
-       pci_write_config_byte(pci_dev, 0x59, ~temp);
+	pci_write_config_byte(pci_dev, 0x59, temp);

        pci_dev = pci_find_device(PCI_VENDOR_ID_AL,
		PCI_DEVICE_ID_AL_M7101, pci_dev);
        if (pci_dev == NULL)
                return -1;

-       temp = 0x20;
+	pci_read_config_byte(pci_dev, 0xB8, temp);
+	temp &= ~0x20
-       pci_write_config_byte(pci_dev, 0xB8, ~temp);  // the line I 
+	pci_write_config_byte(pci_dev, 0xB8, temp);  //commented out

        return 0;
I'll try it and will tell you what the result is. Anyway, what are 
those commands doing, i.e. what am I loosing when I comment it out? 
Is there some specific functionality I should test to see the result 
of these changes?
