Perhaps we should change PCIE_BUS_PEER2PEER to also write MRRS anyway.

I realize the CNS3xxx patch is some sort of clever workaround, and that
PCIE_BUS_PEER2PEER (which normally comes from kernel command line
parameter "pcie_bus_peer2peer") was not exactly intended for this. But
if one asks for "peer2peer" (which means limiting transfers to 128
bytes), how could it all work if the bus mastering read requests are
not equally limited?


BTW s/MRSS/MRRS/g
