Hi Grant,

I know why, but had no time to work on it lately. Please wait.

Expected, the generic possibility to force ISA addresses was dropped from
2.6.14-rc1. The rationale was that this was making the i2c-core
needlessly complex. Force parameters will be added to individual ISA
drivers on a case-by-case basis, as forcing an address has a different
meaning depending on the device (legacy ISA, PCI subdevice or Super-I/O
logical device).

I'll try to find an acceptable workaround to automatically detect your
specific LM78 while still not putting other machines at risk. If I fail
we'll add a force parameter back into the lm78 driver so that you can
use it.
