I still have to test this approach on a Jetway board of mine with a
Fintek F71805F chip.

Why do you say this is ugly? Of course it is vendor specific (or even
board specific) but so is the asus_atk0110 driver. Wouldn't it be a
proper way to deal with the ACPI resource conflict at least on the
Jetway boards, and maybe others? If it works then I can't really see a
reason to not do it, can you? It seems preferable to
acpi_enforce_resources=lax people are using at the moment, at least.
