Subject: [PATCH v3 2/2] PCI: Reduce warnings on possible RW1C corruption

For hardware that only supports 32-bit writes to PCI there is the
possibility of clearing RW1C (write-one-to-clear) bits. A rate-limited
messages was introduced by fb2659230120, but rate-limiting is not the
best choice here. Some devices may not show the warnings they should if
another device has just produced a bunch of warnings. Also, the number
of messages can be a nuisance on devices which are otherwise working
fine.

This patch changes the ratelimit to a single warning per bus. This
ensures no bus is 'starved' of emitting a warning and also that there
isn't a continuous stream of warnings. It would be preferable to have a
warning per device, but the pci_dev structure is not available here, and
a lookup from devfn would be far too slow.

Suggested-by: Bjorn Helgaas <helgaas@...nel.org>
Fixes: fb2659230120 ("PCI: Warn on possible RW1C corruption for sub-32 bit config writes")
