We have a bunch of those as well.

I'm overdue for a blog post regarding PCIe. It would be nice to have
a spot where we collect a set of "known working" drivers.

We (and Freescale) have been adding patches along the way, but at the
moment, our record is that around ~75% of drivers just work, and
that others require some hacking of the core PCIe glue.

I'll leave this question in Otavio's capable hands.
