We already have CONFIG_PCI_QUIRKS, which enables everything in
drivers/pci/quirks.c.  That file should contain quirks for devices
that may appear on any architecture, e.g., things on plug-in cards.

Quirks that are only applicable to one arch should be in the arch
directory, e.g., in arch/x86/pci/fixup.c.

If drivers/pci/quirks.c contains arch-specific quirks, we should move
those to the appropriate arch directory.

It looks like arch/x86/pci/fixup.c is currently compiled
unconditionally (on x86 with PCI), but we should probably make it
dependent on CONFIG_PCI_QUIRKS, since I think the infrastructure that
*calls* those quirks is only present when CONFIG_PCI_QUIRKS=y.
