Good question...  :-)

I'll try to investigate this question, but this isn't that easy to do,
as the Laptop which shows the problem has only 4 MiB[1] of RAM so trying
to boot a recent standard GENERIC kernel (which is about 10 MiB) is no

So I'll have to try to build an _small_ kernel, including PCI support to
test if the problem still shows up.

I'm willing to do so[2] -- but it will take some time.  Does it make
any sense trying to get 5.0.1 running on this old system or should I try
some older version?  (which?)


[1]  Yes, this about one thousandth of what people carry around in there
     notebooks nowadays...  :-/
[2]  though I'm a bit hesitating to risk the destruction of my currently
     installed system
