net/bw{i,n}-firmware-kmod: Allow build on powerpc

They are required for bwi(4) or bwn(4) to actually work.  The Airport
Extreme cards in {i,Power}Books are PCI devices.

Mark as not-for !x86.

These ports fail to build on at least powerpc64; plus, these aging PCI
and/or CardBus cards are unlikely to be of use on other tier-2 archs.

Convert to USES=kmod, which removes duplicated code and ensures that all
required steps are followed.

There are no user-visible changes.  The exception is multimedia/ptx-kmod,
which now installs the kernel module into /boot/modules instead of
${PREFIX}/libexec/${PORTNAME}, this was something USES=kmod cannot handle.
