From my perspective, negative functionality is being lost. There is a
nice comment in the source code explaining what it is...
* Enable workarounds for certain chip revision deficiencies.
* Systems based on the ICH2/ICH2-M chip from Intel have a defect
* where the chip can cause a PCI protocol violation if it receives
* a CU_RESUME command when it is entering the IDLE state. The
* workaround is to disable Dynamic Standby Mode, so the chip never
* deasserts CLKRUN#, and always remains in an active state.
* See Intel 82801BA/82801BAM Specification Update, Errata #30.
