Why not fix the BIOS? That's what sane platforms do :)

s/optinal/optional/ ?

And you should explain what exactly in PCI is "optional". Who defines
this and where is that list and what can go wrong if those options are
not enabled?

In looking at your patch, I can't determine that at all, so there's no
way that someone just looking at this sentence will be able to
understand.
