I notice this is called from a subsys_initcall(). We scan the PCI bus
much earlier in arch/x86/kernel/early-quirks.c and it would be possible
to identify presence of Thunderbolt host controllers in an early quirk
(using the method of pci_is_thunderbolt_attached()) and, if found,
enable their GPEs or all GPEs.
Just as an aside in case your method doesn't work, I'm not affected by
this issue being a Mac user... ;-)
