Please excuse my ignorance but a naive question:

__pci_setup_bridge() outputs the same text (exept for an additional
string that is empty in this case) and I wonder how to say where it came

Anyway, please let me know if it would help that I activate more verbose
messages with the working or problematic kernel. I will then risk to
annoy the users with one more short downtime.
