Did you actually try to use the card?
The messages indicate:
 - the driver tried several combinations of alignment and burst sizes
 - some of the combinations failed
   (as oneo-san pointed out, it depends on the PCI chipset and the
    motherboard design)
 - the driver concluded that the hardware can handle the burst size of
   64 bytes but the address must be aligned

It is still possible that the driver fails to use the card after the
test (for an unknown reason).
