Talking about fixups, did anyone examine the very recent pci bandwidth
patch from VIA and try using setpic for a fixup? I emailed VIA
asking for details of the fixup and haven't heard back yet.

(I haven't got windows installed to do a before and after comparison
of the chipset registers to try the fixup here.)

tecchannel.de references:

PCI Bandwidth: http://www.tecchannel.de/hardware/817/
VIA Patch Results: http://www.tecchannel.de/hardware/817/11.html

Peak transfer rates increased from 10-40%

Cheers,

Mark
