[PATCH v2 0/4] PCI: arm64/powerpc: Fix parsing of linux, pci-probe-only

The pci-host-generic driver parses the linux,pci-probe-only property,
and assumes that it will have a boolean parameter.

Turns out that the Seattle DTS file has a naked "linux,pci-probe-only"
property, which leads to the driver dereferencing some unsuspecting
memory location. Nothing really bad happens (we end up reading some
other bit of DT, fortunately), but that not a reason to keep it this
way. Turns out that the Pseries code (where this code was lifted from)
may suffer from the same issue.

The first patch introduces a common (and fixed) version of that check
that can be used by drivers and architectures that require it. The two
following patches change the pci-host-generic driver and the powerpc
code to use it.

Finally, the bad property is removed from the Seatle DTS, because it
is simply not necessary (it actually prevents me from using SR-IOV,
which otherwise runs fine without the probe-only thing).

This has been tested on the offending Seattle board.

* From v1:
  - Consolidate the parsing in of_pci.c (Bjorn)
