MCP5x seem to be infinite source of surprises. Some reports I remember:
 - snd_hda not working with MSI enabled - AFAIR not just loosing
interrupts but completely stops responding;
 - using regular HPET interrupts breaks HDA sound after some time
(interrupts are not shared), while legacy_route mode operates properly;
 - at least on one system I've seen non-functioning SATA interrupts.
It would be nice to find what's going on there. I've got tired to add
workarounds for it. :(
