xhci port capabilities warning is confusing
Today we parse the xhci port capabilities section to try and find what exists. When we encounter a port version that we don't understand, we issue a warning. This ends up looking like:
WARNING: xhci0: encountered port capabilities with unknown major USB version: 51382274
This warning is confusing for two reasons. One is that that number makes no sense. This is raw value of the port configuration register. We should just use the major and minor version. Secondly, this is confusing because it's not actually a major version specifically.
The fix will be to have it look like %x.%x which would become 3.10.

To test this, I manually stepped through xhci_port_count. When we read the version from the register, I edited it in mdb as follows:
xhci`xhci_port_count+0x9b: call -0x1030 <xhci`xhci_get32> > ::step over kmdb: target stopped at: xhci`xhci_port_count+0xa0: movl -0x44(%rbp),%edx > <rax=K 2000802 > 23230802>rax
With that in place, we eventually saw:
WARNING: xhci0: encountered port capabilities with unknown USB version: 23.23
Which makes a lot more sense and is useful to folks.
