you sent me output of lspci -x and I need all xxx ;)

Even this would be ok:
lspci -xxx

Well I'm working on some tool to teach coreboot how to create the PSS objects.
If you want to get frequency scaling working.

1) acpidump -t SSDT -b >ssdt.bin
2) iasl -d ssdt.bin
3) send it here ;) you should see some PSS PCT objects. I will tell how to put 
this into the dsdt.asl in src/mainboard/asus....

Yep check above.

Ok, I think for some reason the PCIe card does not get to work. I have ATI card 
and it does work.

Hopefully can tell more once I have the lspci dumps from original BIOS.
