	   This allows device drivers to enable MSI (Message Signaled
	   Interrupts).  Message Signaled Interrupts enable a device to
	   generate an interrupt using an inbound Memory Write on its
	   PCI bus instead of asserting a device IRQ pin.

	   Use of PCI MSI interrupts can be disabled at kernel boot time
	   by using the 'pci=nomsi' option.  This disables MSI for the
	   entire system.

	  Say Y here if you want the PCI core to spawn a new thread for
	  every PCI device that is probed.  This can cause a huge
	  speedup in boot times on multiprocessor machines, and even a
	  smaller speedup on single processor machines.

	  But it can also cause lots of bad things to happen.  A number

	  Say Y here if you want the PCI core to produce a bunch of debug
