I only added the PCI id for 82546GB cards about 6 weeks ago so I don't know
how it would even attach on such a card with 3.6 unless its not really a
82546GB card. These are PCI-Express cards.

Regarding the quad port cards, this is not an issue with the em driver most
likely but really an issue with the PCI layer. I'm pretty sure we're just not
doing something right with the on-board IBM PCI-X to PCI-X bridge.
