OK, the "irqpoll=1" option does help here. Although this message is obviously scary:

Misrouted IRQ fixup and polling support enabled
This may significantly impact system performance

And the "pci=nocrs" option does Really Bad Things to the display at boot-time.

So what is "irqpoll" actually doing, please? Is it just a temporary workaround for a driver bug?
