I do see a similar issue with a Tyan s2885 (Thunder K8W) motherboard,
where the 2nd root bus isn't detected with ACPI kernels.

The problem is that the DSDT is missing the PCI Routing Table (_PRT)
for this bus, which is AFAIK mandatory.

    Device(PCIB) {
        Name(_HID, 0x030ad041)
        Name(_ADR, 0x00180000)
        Method(^BN0B) {
        Method(_BBN) {
        Name(_UID, 0xb)
        Device(PBP2) {
            Name(_ADR, 0x00010000)
            Method(_PRT) {
                If(PICM) {

I asked Tyan to fix the BIOS; but unfortunately, as my motherboard is
EOLed, they said that they won't correct it :-(
