I worry that if the chip does this, and somehow MSI-X is enabled and
an interrupt is generated, the chip will write to the cleared out
MSI-X address. This will either write garbage into memory or cause
a bus error and require PCI error recovery.

It also looks like your test patch doesn't fix things for people who
have tested it.
