We've been running X4100, X4200's and M2's in production almost since
their release.  No idea about the nForce ethernet rubbish on the M2's
but the 2 Intel 1000/Pro's are fine.

I've not noticed any USB issues, but we tend to leave the drivers
disabled; it's not much use on a server.  iLOM works nicely, gmirror's
solid as a rock, as is mpt (SCSI/SAS driver).
