Back in the PCI days, the Emu10k1 chip was known to be quite inefficient
(many small transfers, and IIRC even latency timer bugs) and to be
problematic when used with other high-bandwidth PCI chips like TV capture

Your PCIe/PCI bridge (5:0.0, iTE IT8892) which handles the PCI bus is
affected by the change.

I do not know if this is an actual hardware bug, or if the bridge is
just too slow to wake up the PCIe link.

Please show the output of "lspci -v -s 5:0".

Does this mean that the new kernel _dis_ables ASPM, where it left it
enabled previously?

Please try that kernel parameter.
