I vote yes: turn it off by default. We just ran into an MSI issue on a
particular Via motherboard (Asus M2V) that runs the network driver
(atl1) I help maintain. The kernel blows up when we start the network
unless we turn off MSI.
One of our bug reporters points to a unbuntu thread where they mention
they have just turned of msi by default.
