It was my impression that the PCI IDs should be unique - handed out by a
single third party for just this sort of issue?

Is this PCI ID overlap due to a bug in the hardware introduced by one of
the manufacturers, or an error in the PCI ID list that the kernel uses?

If it is a hardware issue, I'd go back to the PCI ID organizations list
and load the driver for the card that they say goes with that PCI ID and
then issue a bug report or patch to the other drivers development team for

Sounds like this might be similar to this bug report:
