In support of fixing a pfn info-block interpretation problem that
requires a backwards incompatible format change introduce a mechanism to
indicate a minimum support level to the parsing agent. Hopefully this
mechanism never needs to be used, but it otherwise prevents the need to
hunt for a state that causes old implementations to bail out.

For now, the method chosen to make implementations prior to this
introduction fail is to use new PFN3_MODE_* values. The use of 'mode'
ensures that older Linux fails, but agents like the EFI driver that only
care about 'data_offset' can continue to ignore the requirement. That is
to say 'data_offset' should always be valid, but the interpretation of
values that older Linux kernels use to setup the dev_pagemap and perform
sector-to-pfn translations is going to change.
