SubjectRe: [Patch v2] Make PCI extended config space (MMCONFIG) a driver opt-in
I just thought this might be interesting to the discussion.

My hardware is as following:

Asus Commando (Intel P965 chipset)
Intel Core2 Q6600
4x1 GB Geil PC6400 memory
nVidia 8800 gts (old g80 core, 640 mb mem)

(0001:00): 6, PE0001

My software is Kubuntu 7.10 stock x86_64 kernel, but i do use the
binary driver by nVidia.

It works like a charm when using pci=nommconf

If you guys need any more info about hardware/software from me, please
let me know.
