[PATCH v2 2/4] PCI: pci-host-generic: Fix lookup of linux, pci-probe-only property

When pci-host-generic looks for the probe-only property, it seems
to trust the DT to be correctly written, and assumes that there
is a parameter to the property.

Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and some firmware expose
this property naked. The driver ends up making a decision based on
whatever the property pointer points to, which is likely to be junk.

Switch to the common of_pci.c implementation that doesn't suffer
from this problem.
