Yes, there is the same problem, but I'm not sure we can actually fix it.

The driver core walks the list of available drivers for the given bus just
once in bus_probe_device(), so it cannot check all drivers against each of
the given device IDs. So it looks like acpi_bus_match() does all it can do
(one more reason to get rid of the ACPI bus type IMHO).

Thanks,
