Yep:

[    0.716126] pci 0000:03:01.0: AMD8131 rev 12 detected; disabling PCI-X MMRBC
[    0.716138] pci 0000:03:02.0: AMD8131 rev 12 detected; disabling PCI-X MMRBC

But that interrupt behaviour is exaclty the same which we saw with the
other pre rev 12 versions. So I just wanted Edward to try that quirk
and see whether it solves his issues.

Thanks,
