Your own kernel might not support PCI hotplug? The slot names might
not be available if the support for them is missing.

Btw, predictable means it will not change between reboots, that names
will not depend on enumeration order within the same setup. It does
not mean or promise, that added kernel/driver/firmware features will
not result in different names. That is expected behavior.
