[QEMU] pci: Unaligned config read/write overflow

The default config read/write handlers allows a 4-byte read/write at
address 255.  This can clobber the field after the config area.  This
happens to be the PCIBus pointer in the PCIDevice structure.

This patch stops this from reducing the read/write to the (largest
multiple of 2) number of bytes within the config area.

[QEMU] Simpler workaround for guest writes to PCI config
space that extend past byte 0xff.
