Probably because you hit the arbitrary size limit. We are considering
moving to bugzilla for this reason and several others.

Missing SMBus function (should be 00:1f.3). Quite typical from Asus, they
tend to hide it for no reason.

You need what is called a PCI quirk to enable it again. Good news is that
this is a known problem with a known solution. Bad news is that it
involves a kernel recompilation, which you might not be used to.

We'd now need the output of "lspci -s 00:00.0 -vn" to add the quirk
your system needs. With that I can write a patch for you to test (if you
can do that).
