I've just paid the machine a visit and yes, MSIX fails on the onboard but
the device still works.

The PCI card however doesn't work, whereas it did when using 8.0-RELEASE.
(There is occasional activity from tcpdump). I'm able to use the onboard
so I can survive, but FYI, the PCI card output:

kernel: em1: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Legacy Network Connection 1.0.1> port 0x1000-0x103f mem 0xe3120000-0xe313ffff,0xe3100000-0xe311ffff irq 9 at device 1.0 on pci5
kernel: em1: [FILTER]
kernel: em1: Ethernet address: 00:1b:21:5b:f2:18

(no MSIX failure here, or in 8.0-RELEASE)

$ ifconfig em1
