SubjectRE: [PATCH] pci: Add quirk for still enabled interrupts on Intel Sandy Bridge GPUs
Yeah it is very unfortunate that this hasn't been fixed in the BIOS.

Just a small heads up: Boards with the new Intel Ivy bridge chipset are affected, too. Currently known to be affected is

Intel Desktop Board DH77EB


Would be nice if Intel fixes the shared BIOS code...

Thanks to Drew Weaver for reporting the issue. I currently don't have time to prepare another quirk.

Best regards
