Undoubtedly some of the drivers that are excluded will work, either with
bounce buffers or with 64 bit pci addressing, but I am unable to test them.

Please do not enable drivers just because they compile.  For drivers which
must use bounce buffers at the very least test them with modified bus dma
tags which will force bounce buffering.  Drivers which will use 64 bit pci
addressing must be tested with more than 4G of ram.
