MicroSemi Switchtec management interface driver

Microsemi's "Switchtec" line of PCI switch devices is already well
supported by the kernel with standard PCI switch drivers.  However, the
Switchtec device advertises a special management endpoint with a separate
PCI function address and class code.  This endpoint enables some additional
functionality which includes:

 * Packet and Byte Counters
 * Switch Firmware Upgrades
 * Event and Error logs
 * Querying port link status
 * Custom user firmware commands

Add a switchtec kernel module which provides PCI driver that exposes a char
device.  The char device provides userspace access to this interface
through read, write and (optionally) poll calls.

A userspace tool and library which utilizes this interface is available
at [1].  This tool takes inspiration (and borrows some code) from
nvme-cli [2].  The tool is largely complete at this time but additional
features may be added in the future.

Enables support for the management interface for the MicroSemi
Switchtec series of PCIe switches. Supports userspace access
to submit MRPC commands to the switch via /dev/switchtecX
devices. See <file:Documentation/switchtec.txt> for more
