Yes, that's OK. Please note that I asked the person who originally reported the 
problem to make sure that this patch doesn't break anything, but he was still 
too busy to test until now.

I assume (from what I know of the PCI subsystem now) that this is a safe patch, 
so feel free to add:

Acked-by: Auke Kok <auke-jan.h.kok@...el.com>

Cheers,


Auke
