Hmm, it shouldn't be working then. Rather, I think you are making the system
violate the spec. :)
When a PCI device uses MSI (not MSI-X) with multiple vectors, it is required
that the low N bits of the 'data' register all be zeros, and that the device
will set the low N bits to the individual message number.
Can you do 'show lapic' at a DDB prompt (you can just use Ctrl-Atl-Break or
the like to drop into the debugger) and reply with the output? It's a bit odd
that you don't have an aligned block of 16 vectors available.
