Description of problem:
My notebook has an AR8151 gigabit ethernet chip supported by atl1c. Upon running lspci -vv (or more verbose), the following message appears in dmesg:
[ 819.730511] atl1c 0000:04:00.0: vpd r/w failed. This is likely a firmware bug on this device. Contact the card vendor for a firmware update.
lspci itself prints this to stderr:
pcilib: sysfs_read_vpd: read failed: Connection timed out
Full dmesg and lspci -vvvv output attached. No detrimental effect on network card performance observed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always upon running lspci -vv.

lspci -vvvv output
as the message says, this is likely a firmware bug. nothing we can fix.
alternatively, "don't do that".
