Well, technically I think commit c5611df96804 ("MIPS: PCI: Introduce
CONFIG_PCI_DRIVERS_LEGACY") is to blame (Cc'ing paul), and the first bad
commit would be commit eed0eabd12ef ("MIPS: generic: Introduce generic
DT-based board support") which selects PCI_DRIVERS_GENERIC and is the
only platform to do so. Both commits were first in v4.9-rc1 and I can
reproduce this problem at that latter commit with the appropriate

But yes clearly the mentioned commit does also expose that existing
problem more widely and to the default allmodconfig, and it looks like a
reasonable approach for now, so if some mention of the other two commits
is added:

Reviewed-by: James Hogan <>

Having it in 4.15 would be great.
