I am trying to connect a Promise SANLink2 Thunderbolt-2-to-10-GbE-Ethernet device to a Lenovo ThinkPad running Ubuntu 16.04. The system does not recognize the dual Ethernet interfaces on the device. If I look at dmesg after plugging in the device, I see the following:

lspci shows the PCI bridge devices that appear when I plug in the SANLink2, but it doesn't show anything attached to those bridges. You can see the full lspci -vvxxxx output here.

I've found mentions of similar issues on other distro bug trackers, but no solutions that help my problem. I've tried the latest mainline kernel (v4.7) to see if any recent bugfixes had an effect, but I see the same behavior.

If I could comment, this would be a comment - because I do not yet have a definitive solution. I am suffering this on Thunderbolt 3 with Titan Ridge add-in cards. It only seems to affect my eGPU - my SANLink3 N1 and Dell Thunderbolt 3 SSD appear unaffected. Either their BARs are assigned, or they are not affected by them failing to be assigned. I have done things to help, but have not fully solved it yet. My external R9 Nano has a BAR like yours, possibly with the exact size and type, that is failing: [mem size 0x00200000 64bit pref]

Some things that I have found may help:

With Titan Ridge, pci=assign-busses can help a lot, particularly if using the Thunderbolt controller on an unsupported system (such as AMD), but this breaks any Thunderbolt implementation prior to Titan Ridge - so do not use this one.

I do not know if Thunderbolt 2 had security levels or not. But as a last resort, you can enable Thunderbolt boot support and Thunderbolt Option ROM in BIOS, and disable security levels if applicable. Then attach the SANLink to the computer before you power it on, and hopefully the BIOS will allocate it (in this case, remove the kernel parameters you were experimenting with for Linux). This is not the way we want to move forward - everything should be dealt with in the OS where the code can be easily updated, audited and debugged. But for now, the BIOS will continue to plague us.

If you wish to use the 4.20-rc2 kernel right now, you will have to compile your own - as once again, Ubuntu is failing mainline builds and nobody is doing anything about it. http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/

Best of luck! I am aware this is two years and three months ago, so you might not even have the computer anymore. But it has 766 views, and perhaps other people would be interested in some semblance of a solution.
