BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1797990

We observed a kdump failure in x86 that was narrowed down to MSI irq
storm coming from a PCI network device. The bug manifests as a lack of
progress in the boot process of kdump kernel, and a flood of kernel
messages like:

[...]
[ 342.265294] do_IRQ: 0.155 No irq handler for vector
[ 342.266916] do_IRQ: 0.155 No irq handler for vector
[ 347.258422] do_IRQ: 14053260 callbacks suppressed
[...]

The root cause of the issue is that kexec process of the kdump kernel
doesn't ensure PCI devices are reset or MSI capabilities are disabled,
so a PCI adapter could produce a huge amount of irqs which would steal
all the processing time for the CPU (specially since we usually restrict
kdump kernel to use a single CPU only).

This patch implements the kernel parameter "pci=clearmsi" to clear the
MSI/MSI-X enable bits in the Message Control register for all PCI devices
during early boot time, thus preventing potential issues in the kexec'ed
kernel. PCI spec also supports/enforces this need (see PCI Local Bus
spec sections 6.8.1.3 and 6.8.2.3).
