I wonder if this is a contributing factor to this bug I'm experiencing where the kernel's attempt to turn ASPM off on an e1000 device whose support is lethally buggy fails or is somehow reverted shortly after taking effect, leading to an interface freeze a few minutes to days later...
So far the e1000e guys have declared defeat and I've been too lazy/busy to hand it off to the PCI guys for further diagnosis (in part because the sourceforge bugtracker is so bloody ugly that I'm mildly ashamed to point anyone at it. Oops.)
