[RFC PATCH] PCI: rockchip: fix system hang up if activate CONFIG_DEBUG_SHIRQ

With CONFIG_DEBUG_SHIRQ enabled, the irq tear down routine
would still access the irq handler registed as a shard irq.
Per the comment within the function of __free_irq, it says
"It's a shared IRQ -- the driver ought to be prepared for
an IRQ event to happen even now it's being freed". However
when failing to probe the driver, it may disable the clock
for accessing the register and the following check for shared
irq state would call the irq handler which accesses the register
w/o the clk enabled. That will hang the system forever.

With adding some dump_stack we could see how that happened.

In order to fix this, we check the clk state before accessing the
pcie register in rockchip_pcie_read, but don't touch rockchip_pcie_write
as no case to trigger that from write routine.

Hi Bjorn, Thomas and Marc,

This fix looks more like a hack, but I don't know the legit way to
deal with that case. Just quick look into the drivers/pci/host, and
I see almost all drivers register shard irq and also disable the clk
in their probe's error handle path. So I guess this is NOT pcie-rockchip
specified even not pcie host drivers specified, but folks just luckily didn't
trip over it.

Could you give some suggestion on this?
