Subject: [PATCH] PCI: Work around Stratus ftServer broken PCIe hierarchy (fix
 DMI check)

commit 1278998f8ff6d66044ed00b581bbf14aacaba215 upstream.

Commit 284f5f9 was intended to disable the "only_one_child()" optimization
on Stratus ftServer systems, but its DMI check is wrong.  It looks for
DMI_SYS_VENDOR that contains "ftServer", when it should look for
DMI_SYS_VENDOR containing "Stratus" and DMI_PRODUCT_NAME containing

Tested on Stratus ftServer 6400.
