Disable EISA and probes

Hi Everyone,

I would like to disable EISA and its probes during boot. I found the
docs at https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/driver-api/eisa.html,
but it does not discuss how to disable EISA or the probes.

I also found https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1543919,
where folks are wondering why EISA is enabled by default nowadays. And
one person asks about a kernel option to disable it (like I am doing).

I'd like to add a boot param like eisa=0 or eisa=off, but I suspect
it's not that easy. Looking at the three documented kernel parameters,
they all enable EISA and probes.

How do I disable EISA and the probes?

Thanks in advance.
