My guesses about acronyms:
HRUP -- host router upstream port (connected to PCI root port).
HRDN -- host router downstream port.
EPUP -- end point upstream port.

Looks like BIOS developers tried to be smart and described actual hierarchy
from root port to end point.
The problem is that it doesn't fit to ACPI PCI hotplug. :(

Don't see anything useful in RP05.HRUP:

Device (HRUP)
{
Name (_ADR, Zero) // _ADR: Address
Name (_PRW, Package (0x02) // _PRW: Power Resources for Wake
{
0x09,
0x04
})
Device (HRDN)
{
Name (_ADR, 0x00040000) // _ADR: Address
Name (_PRW, Package (0x02) // _PRW: Power Resources for Wake
{
0x09,
0x04
})
Device (EPUP)
{
Name (_ADR, Zero) // _ADR: Address
Method (_RMV, 0, NotSerialized) // _RMV: Removal Status
{
Return (One)
}
}
}
}
