Could you please give the patch at:
a try with that machine? The patch implements the consistent
DMA syncing required for devices behind PCI-PCI, f.e. your
HMEs, for Schizo version >= 5. I.e. please test, whether
the machine still boots with the patch in place and using
a HME just works and increases the vec566: pcib0 counter
(I hope I got the numbers right; well, see `vmstat -i`
for pcib interrupts).
