It would be interesting to see if the configuration space of the card
changes.  To dump it, run this command as root:

lspci -xxxd 1260:

Please compare the dumps for different stages, such as cold boot to Linux,
first reboot from Windows to Linux and second reboot to Linux.  If you
find any differences, please post your dumps to the list.
