[PATCH v2 01/14] PCI: Use sysfs_emit() and sysfs_emit_at() in "show" functions

The sysfs_emit() and sysfs_emit_at() functions were introduced to make
it less ambiguous which function is preferred when writing to the output
buffer in a device attribute's "show" callback [1].

Convert the PCI sysfs object "show" functions from sprintf(), snprintf()
and scnprintf() to sysfs_emit() and sysfs_emit_at() accordingly, as the
latter is aware of the PAGE_SIZE buffer and correctly returns the number
of bytes written into the buffer.

No functional change intended.
