I'm currently testing 2.6.29.1 without any additional patches but
with the pci=nomsi boot option.

I didn't notice any hickups, yet. I'm running a stresstest on a GBit link for quite
some time now. Earlier tests with older kernels and MSI burped earlier.

I will do more testing. If it turns out this is stable I will test the same kernel
with Message Signaled Interrupts to see if that causes some breakage.
