2.6.32-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Takashi Iwai <tiwai(a)>

commit 80c43ed724797627d8f86855248c497a6161a214 upstream.

Judging from the member of enable_msi white-list, Nvidia controller
seems to cause troubles with MSI enabled, e.g. boot hang up or other
serious issue may come up. It's safer to disable MSI as default for
Nvidia controllers again for now.
