    I think this is a known problem but it is strange that
    no one bother to implement something to make it easier
    for the end user to compile their own kernel rather
    than seraching the file and edit it . Of course I
    believe my box is not the only one suffering such
    problem.

    Just after posting my first email, I found the file,
    yes it is in arch/i386/kernel/pci-pc.c and I just
    comment out all lines in struct pci_fixup
    pcibios_fixups[] related to VIA; that is
    PCI_FIXUP_HEADER, PCI_VENDOR_ID_VIA etc...

    I have no idea if this affects the system, but it
    seemed that the problem is solved and no thing wierd
    happened yet :-). May be if I got some trouble I will
    set the bit as you said.
