I'm willing to guess its a cardbus device.  We're now back to the
usual problem with nVidia boards.

has a proposed patch (pci-subordinate-busnr-fix) by Adam Belay to fix
this.  However, looking at the structure of your PCI buses, this patch
won't work in your case.  Curse these damned nVidia boards!

Could you attach yourself to that bug and add your lspci -vv information
to it as well please?
