[PATCH] powerpc/pci: Fix endian bug in fixed PHB numbering

The recent commit 63a72284b159 ("powerpc/pci: Assign fixed PHB number
based on device-tree properties"), added code to read a 64-bit property
from the device tree, and if not found read a 32-bit property (reg).

There was a bug in the 32-bit case, on big endian machines, due to the
use of the 64-bit value to read the 32-bit property. The cast of &prop
means we end up writing to the high 32-bit of prop, leaving the low
32-bits containing whatever junk was on the stack.

If that junk value was non-zero, and < MAX_PHBS, we would end up using
it as the PHB id. This results in users seeing what appear to be random
PHB ids.

Fix it by reading into a u32 property and then assigning that to the
u64 value, letting the CPU do the correct conversions for us.
