I've just submitted a patch to address this issue.  Does it work for you?

The term "proper patch" is just kernel slang for a patch which can be applied with "git am" by the PCI maintainer, Bjorn Helgaas.

Such a patch can be generated with "git format-patch" and sent out with "msmtp" or "git send-email".

There are some formal requirements which the patch needs to satisfy, they are listed here:

Never mind all these details if you do not intend to submit patches yourself.  In this case, I introduced this embarrassing mistake, so it's my job to provide a solution if you don't want to.

Thanks for all the debugging work you have done and once again sorry for the breakage.
