Ok. You confirm that this is however good on newer video side right ?

Also, is there a known issue that if MSI were once enabled, the chip
still shoots them even if we disable them in config space ?

When testing my new patch set, I was trying to test the error path
when the arch does *not* honor the limitation. The error went back
up to the driver as far as I can tell (ie, pci_enable_msi() failed),
but the system still got into error state as if the card had tried
to shoot an MSI to the wrong address.

(I suspect the graphics side)
