you're quite good at this kind of stuff. I suck at explaining things.

is you do this under linux:
lspci -xxx -s 0:0.0

you'll get a full north dump. Try to figure out how your code is setting 
registers vs. how they are set. Use the manual to decode the bits.

I am almost certain it is a north problem. The via northbridges have 
proven to be tought to program, esp. since in some cases we put in 
nominally correct values and the chip locks up.

could be.
