Sorry for the late reply, currently it is just a concern because the
qemu part is
still ongoing and I'm not quite sure about the root cause. But my disussion with
qemu developers indicate my issue might originates from incorrect AML, which
includes _SEG, _BBN and _CRS as you state below. I will try to locate the real
cause recently.

Thanks for clarifying, does it only affect bus 7f/ff, or does it
affect other busses
as well? If only management devices are affected, then I think it is
not the cause
of my issue. But thanks a lot for your detailed reply.
