I fail to see the _kernel_ bug it fixes. I now know that this change
triggers a bug in the old (considered broken by design[1]) PCI code in

So this bug actually contains three:
- The missalignment in the PCI code in the kernel.
- The broken PCI access code in X.org.
- A request to readd the workaround to the kernel to make X.org work
  again (and possibly break other things).
