That’s right.
This fix is valid only for devices which do not work with interrupts in PXE. And while the PXE is per device, it doesn’t matter if you overwrite the static structure.
If there is a patch that I missed, which one option rom can handle multiple cards, I'll be happy to know.

That will overwrite the .irq field within the static vlan_operations structure, thereby disabling IRQs for all possible VLAN devices, not just this one.
