When you pickup a data an submit form (that's what a4j does), JSF ensure
the value user selected is in the list of available values. This is part
of validation process. To do this, it iterate over child select items,
resulting in a call to get f:selectItems entries, resulting in
evaluation of #{manufacturerBean.manufacturerList}. If you want to
prevent useless database calls, you must do it in manufacturerList.
f:selectItems is stateless and won't keep the list in cache.

Note: you might want to consider the Hibernate second level cache &
query caching to prevent too many database queries.
