We have had a few attempts at adding CMB properties and control to
sysfs [1][2]. This patch is based on Jon Derrick's [1] to some exent but
takes a much more conservative approach by only displaying CMB
properties and not attmpting to control them. Assuming this gets
accepted I do have a follow-on that adds more information to the cmb
attribute file.

Rather nicely we contain these changes solely to pci.c.

Applies cleanly to commit 997198ba1ed691c ("fs/block_dev.c: return the
right error in thaw_bdev()") in Jens' for-4.9/block branch.

Tested on both QEMU and on some real hardware I have access too that can
advertise and expose a CMB.

  Use snprintf.
