Thanks for acknowledging that issue.

All this PCI stuff is alien to me, but I am learning some by osmosis
here, which is not bad at all. :)

I only fear that if the patch above is applied and proves to have ill
effects if reverting it will leave this computer (and, potentially,
some others) without booting. As I always say, I can test anything
that you guys want me to do, given some guidance.


Thanks,
