<laughs> So you have a device that shows up mysteriously _after_ the
bootup. That is pretty mysterious.

Hmm, I think there is a mechanism to "re-trigger" the PCI bus scan.
Try this:

echo 1 > /sys/class/pci_bus/0000:03/device/rescan

Hmm, AMT is this fancy chipset that allows the System Admin to turn your
machine on/off, BIOS update, etc. I wonder if there is something further
on that. Can you turn it off and see what happens? Also, I would suggest
Google for 'Intel Mobile 4 Series MEI controller" and look at the spec
and see if they mention anything about device at function 7.

3:0.0 is much different from 0:3.X. It is on a different bus.

So if you pass in WLAN by itself it works fine. But if you pass in
USB + WLAN hell breaks loose?

I would look up specs about the WLAN then.

.. specs, and turn off AMT.
