It lost interrupts.  I had a testcase that should have received three
interrupts and only two were received by the driver.  100%
reproducable.  Card used MSI-Interrupts (no MSI-X) and worked
reasonably well otherwise.  But it is a prototype, so the card is just
as likely to be the cause as the motherboard.

Possible, yes.  But I wouldn't know how to prove it.
Asrock G31M-S with Intel E5200.
