As far as I can tell the following is happening:
The root bus resource window (advertised by the bios?) is to small:
pci_bus 0000:00: root bus resource [bus 00-07]
Previously we didn't really care. There is a resource conflict but we
ignored it:
pci_bus 0000:0a: busn_res: can not insert [bus 0a] under [bus 00-07]
(conflicts with (null) [bus 00-07])
With the patch we mark the bridge as broken and reassign the bus to 06:
pci 0000:00:0e.0: bridge configuration invalid ([bus 0a-0a]), reconfiguring
pci 0000:00:0e.0: PCI bridge to [bus 06-07]
pci 0000:00:0e.0: bridge window [io 0x3000-0x3fff]
pci 0000:00:0e.0: bridge window [mem 0xd4200000-0xd42fffff]
pci_bus 0000:06: busn_res: [bus 06-07] end is updated to 06

We still scan for children but nothing shows up ("PCI bridge to" is
from pci_scan_child_bus -> pcibios_fixup_bus -> pci_read_bridge_base,
after pci_scan_slot). I have no idea why the device does not respond.
