    SubjectRecent x86-64 patch causes many devices to disappear

    The following patch made A TON of devices disappear on my HP XW9300
    system. I complained the day it was committed, but alas...

    > [PATCH] i386/x86_64: Force pci=noacpi on HP XW9300
    > This is needed to see all devices.

    Finally, I was able to get to testing it, and provide proof that a
    shitload of devices do indeed disappear:

    *.rc4 - rc4, plus some libata changes, PCI domains disabled
    *.rc5 - rc5-git1, PCI domains disabled
    *.rc5-pcidom - rc5-git1, PCI domains enabled

    As the patch doesn't work, and the description is proven patently false,
    maybe we can now consider reverting it and making a better patch? My
    Marvell SATA and MPT Fusion devices are no longer available, as a diff
    between lspci.rc5 and lspci.rc5-pcidom demonstrates.
