Have not figured out why the issue was gone. But I think it just cover
some fault.

re-fetch the boot log of mainline kernel without any patch, and filter
out the pci domain 0004
grep "devices_kset: Moving 0004:" newlog.txt
[ 2.114986] devices_kset: Moving 0004:00:00.0 to end of list <---
pcie port drive's probe, but it failed
[ 2.115192] devices_kset: Moving 0004:01:00.0 to end of list
[ 2.115591] devices_kset: Moving 0004:02:02.0 to end of list
[ 2.115923] devices_kset: Moving 0004:02:0a.0 to end of list
[ 2.116141] devices_kset: Moving 0004:02:0b.0 to end of list
[ 2.116358] devices_kset: Moving 0004:02:0c.0 to end of list
[ 3.181860] devices_kset: Moving 0004:03:00.0 to end of list <---
the ata disk controller which sits behind the bridge
[ 10.267081] devices_kset: Moving 0004:00:00.0 to end of list <---
shpc_probe() on this bridge, failed too.

Hence we have the bridge (parent) after the child in devices_kset.

Thanks,
Pingfan
