While we concluded above that I have a different card (USB-hooked Realtek card)
I need since about 3.5 kernel pcie_aspm=off to get acpiphp working. It does not
work for all express cards but maybe this will help you to get *acpiphp* recognize
the slot? Note: the same kernel command line pcie_aspm=off breaks *pciehp* on
my laptop, so don't forget to delete it from grub.conf if you want to stick
with *pciehp* (if your hardware is prone to hit same bug like me: .

Just in case you could switch to acpiphp. ;)
