Actually, I'm not sure that the resource allocation is broken on xl,
per se, but rather we fail to detect that we should use I/O ports
properly.  I'm looking to see if I can find documentation on these
parts so that I might find a better way.  The old way relied on the
fact that we try memory, and that it will always fail.  Now that we do
lazy resource allocation, this is violates the assumptions made by the
xl driver.  A quick survey of other drivers shows that this shouldn't
be a wide-spread problem.
