PCI: fix nested spinlock hang in aer_inject

The aer_inject module hangs in aer_inject() when checking the device's
error masks.  The hang is due to a recursive use of the aer_inject lock.
The aer_inject() routine grabs the lock while processing the error and then
calls pci_read_config_dword to read the masks. The pci_read_config_dword
routine is earlier overridden by pci_read_aer, which among other things,
grabs the aer_inject lock.

Fixed by moving the pci_read_config_dword calls to read the masks to before
the lock is taken.
