You should inform the customer that the platform's BIOS is in violation.  While the kernel can work-around the issue, the root issue is the BIOS not hiding this device's non-conformant BAR.

http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/specification-updates/xeon-e5-v3-spec-update.pdf - look for the "HSE43" entry.  The expected behaviour is for the platform's BIOS to "hide" this device.
