hm, I haven't seen that PCIEASPM crash before.  I think Greg's going to
revert the whole lot.

Meanwhile, please set CONFIG_PCIEASPM.

I have.  In fact, I can reproduce it myself, on the nx6325.

Yup.  I meant "please set CONFIG_PCIEASPM=n"
Comment 6 Plamen Petrov 2008-02-04 04:38:44 UTC
Currently running the same kernel with CONFIG_PCIEASPM=n.
Everything back to normal.
