If no pci access method has been set for the device tree so far (e.g.
during early coreboot_ram), pci_{read,write}_config{8,16,32} will die().
This patch changes pci_{read,write}_config{8,16,32} to use the existing
PCI access method autodetection infrastructure instead of die()ing.

Until r4340, any usage of pci_{read,write}_config{8,16,32} in
coreboot_ram before the device tree was set up resulted in either a
silent hang or a NULL pointer dereference. I changed the code in r4340
to die() properly with a loud error message. That still was not perfect,
but at least it allowed people to see why their new ports died.
Still, die() is not something developers like to see, and thus a patch
to automatically pick a sensible default instead of dying was created.
Of course, handling PCI access method selection automatically for
fallback purposes has certain limitations before the device tree is set
up. We only check if conf1 works and use conf2 as fallback. No further
tests are done.

This patch enables cleanups and readability improvements in early
coreboot_ram code:
Without this patch:
dword = pci_cf8_conf1.read32(&pbus, sm_dev->bus->secondary,
        sm_dev->path.pci.devfn, 0x64);
With this patch:
dword = pci_read_config32(sm_dev, 0x64);
