Description of problem:
When I first power up this machine, I generally get a kernel oops. I'll attach both a good and bad log, as well as the output of lspci.
If I hit the hardware reset switch, the machine generally comes up cleanly. Once up, it appears to run fine forever.
I'll say that this can be reproduced only sometimes, but it happens almost every time when starting from power-off.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Power up machine
Actual Results: I get an oops as shown in the attached files.
Expected Results: No oops.

Bad startup, showing oops

A good startup, caused by hitting hardware reset after initial oops
