I think it does, but given that the PC87366 samples values faster than
the driver allows you to read them (due to the register cache) you
can't see it. You'd need to add some code to the driver or poke the
registers directly from user-space (using isaset and isadump) to see
the bit being actually reset.

But anyway, we don't care about this bit at all.
