Just thought i'd say that this patch also makes the onboard nve chip on
my EPOX 9NDA3+ (likely the same chip as David Xu's 9NDA3J board).

I still get the occasional sputter of an nve0 device timeout(x) though x
seems to be a constant "1" .. instead of the typical climbing towards 64
i have seen happening on other nve-boards.
