yes, it should happen on the live CD too. If you're wondering if this
issue could be breaking your network adapter too, it's certainly a
possibility, I don't know enough to say either way. It would be
extremely useful if you could test this, like, ASAP :) we are still
arguing about what to do about this bug. if you could:

a) test that iommu=soft fixes your USB issue
b) if it does, does it fix your network issue too
c) stick around for the next few hours in case we need you to test
anything else

that would be HUGELY helpful. if you have IRC access, it would give you
super-mega-awesome bonus points to hop online to #fedora-devel and/or
#fedora-kernel on freenode and ping me. thanks :)
