You say "since 4.15-rc1". Does that mean it's a regression? If so,
what's the most recent kernel that does not have this problem? Worst
case, you could bisect to find where it broke.

I don't see anything obvious in the drivers/pci changes between v4.14
and v4.15-rc1. Module loading and driver binding is mostly driven by
the driver core and udev. Maybe you could learn something with
"udevadm monitor" or by turning on the some of the debug in
