The issue here isn't that the different Intel chipsets are supported
using one unified driver. The problem is that we shipped a Fedora
update which contained a security fix and a number of other fixes. One
of these other fixes happened to introduce a regression on all Intel
boards, but the problem was in the general linux pci code and would have
affected all Intel chipsets even if the driver was split into three pieces.
A new update should be out soon, and in the meantime I've put up i386
for people to test. See also:
