I think it is the iprowifi4965 driver. I've taken a look at it before
but not managed to find out why. We do however disable MSI in that
one, perhaps it is ready to use nowadays.

I do from time to time, I think korli and other does too. I'm stuck on
UEFI booting atm, but after that it is ACPI and networking.

There was a bug for this kind of problems[1] but please open a new one
specific for your card. Without bugs it won't get any attention as
others may not see the problem.
