An awful lot of x86 hardware has a 256 (255?) vector limit for MSI/MSI-X.
Couple that with PCIe Virtual Functions, each wanting 16 vectors (for example),
and that limit is really simple to exceed today.

But this is more a problem for a sysadmin, and I am happy with the current
and the proposed methods.

Cheers
