What *_SCANPCI options did you have in your 4.99.16 config ?
In the 5.0.1 kernel you could try commenting out ACPI_SCANPCI and
enabling MPBIOS_SCANPCI, as mbbios seems to find the right number of main

Someone more familiar with ACPI than I am should try to find out why
ACPI finds only one bus (or maybe 0?)
