do_config - EISA/ISA: Initializes the device to its
struct controller *ctlr_p );
Specifies a pointer to the controller structure associated
with the controller to be configured. The do_config routine
obtains the device to initialize through its controller's
associated controller structure pointer.
The do_config routine initializes the specified controller
based on its power-up resource assignments. If the device
uses either an interrupt or a DMA channel, then do_config
also performs any setup requirements. For example, for
controllers that connect to the EISA bus, do_config initializes
the controller according to the parameters specified
in the EISA configuration file.
The do_config routine is a generic interface that maps to
a bus-specific interface that actually initializes the
specified device. Using this routine to initialize a
device makes the driver more portable across different bus
architectures. Not all buses support the do_config routine.
