Subject: [PATCH] driver/pci: reduce the single block time in pci_read_config

From: Jiang Biao <benbjiang@...cent.com>

pci_read_config() could block several ms in kernel space, mainly
caused by the while loop to call pci_user_read_config_dword().
Singel pci_user_read_config_dword() loop could consume 130us+,
              |    pci_user_read_config_dword() {
              |      _raw_spin_lock_irq() {
! 136.698 us  |        native_queued_spin_lock_slowpath();
! 137.582 us  |      }
              |      pci_read() {
              |        raw_pci_read() {
              |          pci_conf1_read() {
  0.230 us    |            _raw_spin_lock_irqsave();
  0.035 us    |            _raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore();
  8.476 us    |          }
  8.790 us    |        }
  9.091 us    |      }
! 147.263 us  |    }
and dozens of the loop could consume ms+.

If we execute some lspci commands concurrently, ms+ scheduling
latency could be detected.

Add scheduling chance in the loop to improve the latency.
