The source code may help you to get further information:-)
Captured from sys/dev/ic/i82557.c
* Systems based on the ICH2/ICH2-M chip from Intel, as well
* as some i82559 designs, have a defect where the chip can
* cause a PCI protocol violation if it receives a CU_RESUME
* command when it is entering the IDLE state.
* The work-around is to disable Dynamic Standby Mode, so that
* the chip never deasserts #CLKRUN, and always remains in the
* active state.
* Unfortunately, the only way to disable Dynamic Standby is
* to frob an EEPROM setting and reboot (the EEPROM setting
* is only consulted when the PCI bus comes out of reset).
* See Intel 82801BA/82801BAM Specification Update, Errata #30.
