Subject[PATCH] drm: Test for PCI root bus to avoid NULL pointer dereference
If we have a GPU on the PCI root bus that calls
drm_pcie_get_speed_cap_mask() we end up with a NULL pointer
dereference since pdev->bus->self is NULL. We already protect
against callers passing non-PCI devices, so let's also catch this
case and return -EINVAL.

Root complex graphics are not terribly likely outside of IGD, but
when we assign a standard plugin GPU to a virtual machine, our
assumption that we have a parent device quickly becomes invalid.
