Heh. This chip is special. It is a south bridge AND a SuperI/O in one

Datasheet: http://linux.kernel.free.fr/VT82C686B.pdf

I sent a superiotool patch for this to the list a few seconds ago. Note
that that patch in its current form may mess with floppy configuration
instead of detecting the SuperI/O. This is due to missing PCI support in
superiotool. Still, it would be very valuable if you could try this patch.

And to make it work, please run superiotool again after executing
setpci -d 1106:0686 85.b=02:02

You can get back the original state of the chipset with
setpci -d 1106:0686 85.b=00:02
