Currently the driver does not call request_region() prior to
accessing IO port regions in f71805f_init(), so add it.

Hi Guenter,

request_muxed_region() would be a better choice here since it doesn't
bail out immediately if the region is temporarily busy.

Are you saying that this region could be busy due to another driver accessing this same region (probably for the same purpose)?

If so, that would be reasonable.

Thanks,
John
