Hello Chris,

The ASPM problem with 82574L is hardware based and is not solvable in software other than to disable it.  Since the platforms vary in their reliability in disabling the feature from the driver, your best option is to always boot with pcie_aspm=off with that part in the system.

So, at least we are clear in your situation, the ASPM needs to be disabled.  Please let me know if there are continued problems after booting with pcie_aspm=off.

Thanks,
