[PATCH] arm: pci: mark the dra7xx driver as broken

This patch marks the dra7xx pci host driver as broken.  This driver
was first merged in v3.17 and has never worked.  Although the driver
compiles just fine, it is missing an essential device reset.  If the
driver is included, the kernel locks up hard shortly after booting,
before any console output appears.
