PCI: export SMBIOS provided firmware instance and label to sysfs
This patch exports SMBIOS provided firmware instance and label of onboard PCI devices to sysfs. New files are: /sys/bus/pci/devices/.../label which contains the firmware name for the device in question, and /sys/bus/pci/devices/.../index which contains the firmware device type instance for the given device.
