Subject[V2] Disable ASPM on various devices
Date
If the firmware has given us control of PCIe capabilities then it's 
valid for an operating system to configure ASPM more aggressively than
the firmware did. A small number of devices object to this and exhibit
various failure modes. Windows provides a mechanism to disable ASPM in
the driver, indicated by the Needs=PciASPMOptOut statement in the .inf
file. Trawling through Windows drivers has indicated the following set
of hardware that disables ASPM in Windows but doesn't currently disable
it in Linux. It makes sense for us to mimic Windows in this situation.

(V2: send the version that actually builds)
