tools: fix pmdinfo for FreeBSD
There were a couple of issues which prevented from running on FreeBSD, both of which are fixed by this patch. * The path to python is not /usr/bin/python as on Linux, so use /usr/bin/env to find it on both OS's. * The path to the pci ids DB is in a different location on FreeBSD, so use the platform python library to look in different default locations depending on the underlying OS. [There are two possible locations to look on FreeBSD, as defined by pciconf manpage, so check in both in order of better to worse] Fixes: c67c9a5c646a ("tools: query binaries for HW and other support information") Signed-off-by: Bruce Richardson <>
