    Please avoid that unless really nessecary. I doubt there's boards where
    MSI would only be broken with the areca card but not with other MSI-capable
    ones. If a board or chipset is generally broken vs MSI it should be
    added to the global MSI blacklist. It's probably be nice to have a global
    nomsi boot option instead of one in every driver aswell..
