This worked in v3.18.16, but not in v4.0.5 or v4.1.0-rc8. You
attached a v4.1.0-rc8 dmesg log earlier. Would you mind collecting a
v3.18.16 dmesg log, so we can compare them?

These (from the v4.1.0-rc8 dmesg) look wrong, but I'll have to look at
the code to see what might be going on:

acpi PNP0A08:00: host bridge window expanded to [mem
0x00000000-0xffffffff window]; [mem 0x00000000-0xffffffff window]
pci 0000:00:1c.1: can't claim BAR 15 [mem 0xfdf00000-0xfdffffff
64bit pref]: address conflict with PCI Bus 0000:00 [mem
0xf0000000-0xfed8ffff window]
