    I'd like in the end to be able to turn off _all_ 'special' hardware
    acceleration tricks without needing a recompile.

    I can turn DMA off with 'dma=none', and at the moment I can turn off
    PIO with 'irq=none' (but I think you're working on changing that..).
    How about if I call the parameter pio, so that 'pio=0 dma=none' will
    do what I want?

    Can anyone think of a better name?
