Thanks for the update to the kernel to allow PCIe use!

I wanted to post my experiences:

Envy24DT based PCIe sound card: Now Workbench does not lock when the card is inserted and the driver (Envy24HT) is loaded into AHI. The system behaves like the audio is working but nothing comes out of the card (which works fine in my linux box). As an example, TuneNet will play a song, showing the bouncing level meters and everything but audio does not come out of the card.

I believe the Envy24HT driver does not work properly with cards based on Envy24DT chips. I wonder if the driver can be updated as these Envy24DT chips can be a very inexpensive alternative to the SAM460ex onboard audio.

The other experience I had was with the Startech "PEX1PCI1" PCIe to PCI bridge adapter card. This card does not work at all with a CMI 8738 sound card that I tried and with a 3Com Prism2 Wireless adapter card. The sound card cause programs to stop responding, and the Prism2 card caused the WiFi signal monitor to completely lock the machine as soon as it was executed.

I also tried the Sii3512 card with this Startech bridge card and the system did not recognize the Sii card to boot from it.

PCIe to PCI bridge that didn't work

PCIe sound card that ALMOST works..
