Ok. This one does not show device 00:1e.0 _at_all_. It had:

I/O behind bridge: 00003000-00006fff
Memory behind bridge: c2000000-cfffffff
Prefetchable memory behind bridge: f0000000-f7ffffff
and it just doesn't show. It shows some of the devices that are behind
that bridge, though, and it should PCI Bus #01. Why not #02? Looks like we
must have decided that that PCI bus is transparent.

But we have the PCI device hierarchy right:

Oh, and your dmesg does show:

PCI: Transparent bridge - 0000:00:1e.0
so that explains it. We believe that 0:1e.0 is transparent.

Maybe we're even right. We do have a few quirky bridges that are marked
transparent. I didn't think yours was one of them, though.

I _think_ it's the code in arch/i386/pci/fixup.c that does this. See the

static void __devinit pci_fixup_transparent_bridge(struct pci_dev *dev)

thing, and try to disable it. Maybe that rule is wrong, and triggers much
too often?

Or maybe it really _is_ a transparent bridge after all, and the problem is
somewhere else. Disabling the pci_fixup_transparent_bridge logic is a good
thing to try first, though.
