Subject[PATCH] PCI/ASPM: Reduce severity of log message
When the UEFI/BIOS or bootloader has not initialised a PCIe device we
would get the following message.

kern.warning: pci 0000:00:01.0: ASPM: current common clock configuration is broken, reconfiguring

"warning" and "broken" are slightly misleading. On an embedded system it
is quite possible for the bootloader to avoid configuring PCIe devices
if they are not needed.

Downgrade the message to pci_info() and change "broken" to
"inconsistent" since we fix up the inconsistency in the code immediately
following the message (and emit an error if that fails).

I'm updating a system from an older kernel to the latest and our tests flagged
this error message. I don't believe it's actually an error since our bootloader
doesn't touch the PCI bus (infact the kernel releases the reset to that
particular device before the PCI bus scan).
