Yes, same issue exists on secondary bus reset. V1-V3 of this series tried to
address this but I couldn't find a solution that is not intrusive. 

I was told that hot reset is a broadcast message. Therefore, we need to handle
CRS for every single device in the tree following a bus reset.

Hotplug code is calling the vendor id read function after power on so it doesn't
have this issue.

I picked up this issue between v4..v9 due to an actual bug reported during our
internal testing. Otherwise, this issue was in rest waiting for review feedback.

CRS handling in hot reset is still open. We can move onto that issue once
we close the FLR.
