Kernel 6.x produces "PTE Write access is not set" Error

After the default upgrade (first within PVE 7.4 and now with PVE 8), the as default installed Kernel 6.x prevents my VM with a GPU passthrough to boot properly.
Within the dmesg log, the error

[DMA Write NO_PASID] Request device [c7:00.0] fault addr 0x27af3000 [fault reason 0x05] PTE Write access is not set
is shown serveral times. Since this error disapear, after I pined the 5.x Kernel and reboot the host, I guess some changes that happen in the 6.x kernel branch do produce this kind of error.

Does anyone has a similar error with kernel 6.x? I really would like to switch to a newer kernel.
