To narrow down the issue - is that a PCI/PCI-X (7,3 ) or PCIe G5 (11,2 ) ?
Single, dual or quad ?
Same question to anyone else with a G5 / PPC970 - what is it and does
it boot recent PPC64 Linux kernel ?
Christian from the original report has a quad, like me (so powermac11,2).
There was also a report of a powermac7.3 working in the original discussion,
single or dual unspecified.
So this might be a Quad thing, or a more general 11,2 thing...

Any test I could run that would help you tracking the bug ?
