Gabriel,

The idea that perhaps something changed in the boot order, resulting in
the DMAR initialization code getting executed before all of the PCI
stuff is set up makes sense, but I don't have a good way of testing it
at the moment. I'm going to try a few more config options (like building
everything as modules instead of mostly built-ins)
