Enable Cadence PCIe controller and pci-j721e drivers to be built as

Why? IOW, who needs them. Please provide rationale in the commit msg. I
am pretty sure I asked for this...

On TI's J7 SOCs, PCIe is composed of PCIe core from Cadence and TI wrapper. It is desired to have J7 PCIe working on upstream kernel by default. So to enable this I have pushed these defconfig changes.

BTW, I am planning to hold this change until PCIe code changes (rest of the patches in this series) gets merged.

Please let me know if there are more concern to this.
Sorry, for this time.
