I am not at all confident about that.

Roman did make a good point about IRQL but that does not eliminate
the problem, we will still be changing hardware state underneath the
OS and that is ALWAYS a bad idea.

I do think we should try to support NT 4 as well, and there the
Hal API is good, so please don't throw the code away yet.
