SubjectASM1083 PCIx-PCI bridge interrupts - widespread problems
Linus et al


For about 6 months many users have been having interrupt problems with PCI boards, but it hasn't been
easy trying to find where the problem may be. However, it is now looking likely that the problem lies
in the ASM1083 PCIe-PCI bridge chipset, as used by Asus in many Sandybridge and AMD boards.

My original bug report is:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38632 (Sandybridge)

and there several other similar ones. However there is also extensive investigation in the following thread:
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/linux/kernel/1466185 (AMD)

There have also been reports of Windows users having similar problems.

This problem prevents use of PCI boards in any motherboard with that bridge chipset - including most
ASUS boards. At the moment though we don't know whether the chipset or drivers are faulty, and if a
workaround is possible.

At the moment my bug is assigned to drivers_network, but this doesn't look appropriate.

Hoping someone can help...

Regards
Chris
