That's a useful high level abstraction of what's happening.  However,
it isn't completely accurate either.

Not entirely.  There are ISA devices in devices.hints that aren't plug
and play and aren't in the PnP BIOS list.  That's a worse problem than
the minor printf :-).

Yes.  Yes. :-)

What we'd like to happen:

        PnP BIOS devices
        PnP ISA devices

What we do now

        PnP BIOS devices
        PnP ISA devices

Note, I tried making the simple changes to make this work, but it
failed in subtle ways that I didn't have time to trackdown...
