Library: Big cleanup of pci_fill_info()
There was a lot of minor issues in the implementation of the fill_info
call-back in various back-ends. Most importantly, semantics of pci_dev->
known_fields was not formally defined and it was implemented inconsistently.
We now define known_fields as the set of fields which were already
obtained during the lifetime of the pci_dev. We never consider known
fields which are not supported by the back-end. All fields which are
unsupported by either the back-end, the OS, or the particular device,
are guaranteed to have sensible default values (0 or NULL). Also, bit
masks are always unsigned except for the signature of pci_fill_info()
which should be preferably kept stable.
All back-ends and the pci_generic_fill_info() function have been changed
to follow this semantics.
In the sysfs back-end, we read as few attributes as possible during
device initialization, so applications which use pci_get_dev() are not
slowed down unnecessarily.
In the Hurd back-end, we also respect the buscentric mode.
