This is odd. However, it's entirely related to the NICs *Bluetooth*
function, which lives on USB.

The NICs *WiFi* function should be a PCIe device, but the USB
connect/disconnect cycles suggest that there's something wrong with the
electrical connection, which presumably causes the PCIe part of the
device to never appear on the bus.
