I don't recall this having been considered an erratum.

Checking just the Fam10 and Fam15 BKDGs, I'm getting the
impression that Fam15 does not have the issue worked around
here. It might further be that not even all Fam10 steppings are
affected. Brian - any chance you could clarify this for us?

Independent of the range of systems affected I still think that
PVH Dom0 behavior here ought to be the same as PV Dom0's.
