Booting with MSI disabled does not change anything. Actually on this
machine the Ethernet (tigon3) uses MSI and everything is fine. OTOH,
on my home PC (dual code Athlon64 4 1/2 years old), MSI has never worked.

With no_wb=1 the driver goes a bit further but the X server ends
up in an infinite ioctl loop and the logs are:
