Hmm. OK. So... is there anyone else that you know of who is interested
in adding this function to the Linux kernel?   I'm hoping to prototype
the full-fledged recovery mechanism over the upcoming weeks/months, and
will try hard to think in a generic/abstract way.

How does one go about getting the pci-X spec? I went to the website,
discovered that I had to be a member of the consortium to get my hands
on the goodies ...
