Agreed. However, this is the newest kernel I have been able to build and boot, 
on the target box. I started with the latest and worked my way back down to, to get one that would build and boot. Most of our platforms are up 
to about or thereabouts.

The target is an Intel DG35JO board, which is a bit old itself? It does not 
expose all of the latest VT-d features, so perhaps it would be better to set 
the whole platform aside and put efforts into getting newer hardware that can 
do things like SR-IOV and EPT?
