Yes the problem is very early in boot.  In KVM guest almost right after Grub it says that PCIe address does not exist (or is not accessible), and sure enough I check it on the host and it's flipped to "Invalid header".  I have to reboot the _host_ to get the card back then.

The card has good specs but Doodle doesn't care about this problem, and I just don't have time to uselessly fiddle with it.
