[PATCH v2 1/3] xfree86: allow fallback to PCI bus probe for graphics devices on non-seat0 X servers (#66851)

Currently non-seat0 X servers only probe platform bus for graphics devices,
which is OK for most KMS-compliant drivers. However, for non-KMS drivers
(like NVIDIA proprietary ones), graphics devices can't be reached
by platform bus probe, resulting in a "No devices detected" error.

This patch allows a fallback to PCI bus probe for non-seat0 X servers
in case no platform bus graphics device is found.
