Jeremy, the bad is, that I don't have another PCIe x1 slot :(.

The reboot doesn't improve anything :(.
I'll build my own kernel within the next days.
Is there anything missing to work with boot option threadirqs?
Usually I use self build kernel-rt and the nv driver. Since the nv
driver is dropped, I'm using the proprietary and I have given up to edit
the nvidia drivers header or to fake the license, since both never
worked on my machine.

There's another issue, I've got 4GB RAM, but only 3.8GB are accessible,
resp. shown. 256MB are missing. I've got this for another install too,
while a PAE 32-bit kernel has no issue with the 4GB. No framebuffer, the
graphics has got it's own RAM.
Thanks and regards,
