0 = input for power switch
1 = input to determine if power adapter is connected
2 = PCMCIA card lock 0
3 = PCMCIA card lock 1
4 = switch 5Vpp
5 = switch 12Vpp
6 = LTC 1323 driver for ser0
7 = output to enable fast charging
8 = input to read IR FORM BUSY
9 = Serial ~CP Enable

0: input if dock attached
1: input if battery not charging
2: available for configuration to the slot
3: 5V on PCMCIA slot
4: reset the IR transceiver
5: determine if rechargeable battery pack is installer

all GPIOs can be configured as inputs and can trigger interrupts
