On the Raspberry Pi 4, after a PCI reset, VL805's firmware may either be
loaded directly from an EEPROM or, if not present, by the SoC's
VideCore. This series adds support for the later.

Note that there are a set of constraints we have to consider (some of
them I missed on v1):
 - We need to make sure the VideoCore firmware interface is up and
   running before running the VL805 firmware load call.

 - There is no way to discern RPi4's VL805 chip from other platforms',
   so we need the firmware load to happen *before* running
   quirk_usb_handoff_xhci(). Failure to do so results in an unwarranted
   5 second wait while the fixup code polls xHC's unexisting state.

As per Stefan Wahren's comments I tested the behaviour on outdated
firmware. Boards dependent on this will not boot if firmware is not
up-to-date. Older boards with outdated firmware will fail to execute the
VideoCore firmware call, but xHCI will perform reliably. I added a
warning printout in case of failure.

I'm aware that Florian Fianelli noted on the previous revision that
waiting on the VideoCore firmware interface during PCIe's probe is far
from ideal. But this was before taking into account the second
constraint mentioned above. Impact on non RPi4 boards is minimal.


Changes since v1:
 - Split things into their own patches
 - Wait for mailbox interface in pcie-brcmstb
 - Move firmware load code into RPi4 platform code
 - Move firmware load to usb/pci-quirks.c
 - Fix behaviour on outdated firmware
