Does booting with pci=nomsi fix this for you ?

Thanks for the reply, Dave.
Well, unfortunately, no it does not fix it.  When I try booting with
"pci=nomsi" I get a message saying that PCI doesn't know the option. Letting it boot anyway gives the same behavior (or at least it hangs
for far too long trying to get an IP, at which point I hit reset).  I
even tried just "nomsi" just in case and no-go there as well.  As it
is, I also have an issue with RHGB under the 2107 kernel and I have to
boot without that to get to the Ethernet issue.
