Do you have "pciehp" in /etc/modules and "options pciehp 
pciehp_force=1 pciehp_slot_with_bus=1" in /etc/modprobe.d/local?

(updating initrds and rebooting is needed too)

I have removed the pciehp mangling in the script as /etc/modules 
(modprobe.d) looks like a more appropriate place for it.

Would adding this to README.Debian have helped you?
