This "so called "problem is the direct result of the Articia S's ability to handle memory access by the CPU and PCI bus.
This behavior reduces latency but is unknown in the Wintel world which is why the Linux drivers don't cater for it.
In the Wintel world either the CPU or the PCI busmaster is allowed to write to memory, not both at the same time.
MAI has been reworking the Linux drivers to cope with this and Hyperion has been aware of this feature for quite some time and has taken it into account when doing DMA capable drivers for the AmigaOne hardware.
It is nice to see Genesi finally putting their cards on the table after close to a easy of rumor mongering so their ignorance can be exposed.
