    Add new finalize functions for devices and chips
    Many chipset devices require additional configuration after
    device init. It is not uncommmon for a device early in the devicetree
    list to need to change a setting after a device later in the tree does
    PCI init. A final function call has been added to device ops to handle
    this case. It is called prior to coreboot table setup.
    Another problem that is often seen is that the chipset or mainboard
    need to do some final cleanup just before loading the OS. The chip
    finalize has been added for this case. It is call after all coreboot
    tables are setup and the payload is ready to be called.
    Similar functionality could be implemented with the hardwaremain
    states, but those don't fit well in the device tree function pointer
    structure and should be used sparingly.
