    Patch in this message
    SubjectRe: PCI devices with no PCI_CACHE_LINE_SIZE implemented
    Martin, below is a patch to lower the severity of this printk to
    KERN_DEBUG, as there are devices which (properly) don't implement the
    PCI_CACHE_LINE_SIZE register, and it's not a bug, so don't print at a
    WARNING level.
