The changelogs don't really give the nitty-gritty details of the
problem, e.g., apparently the host bridge and the MSI controller are
enumerated as two separate devices and there's an ordering issue with
binding drivers to them.

They should also contrast the X-Gene situation with other systems so we
can see why X-Gene has this problem when other systems don't.

I'm not thrilled about all the ACPI code this adds, but I'm guessing
there'll be some better solution eventually.

I'm going to mark these as "changes requested" even though I haven't
asked for anything specific to be changed because it sounds like
Lorenzo et al. may have more concrete proposals soon.

Are there currently systems that do not work and need to be fixed
ASAP?

Bjorn
