python: Fix issue when Self proxy resolves to a another proxy

The problem occurs when a proxy is being resolved to another proxy
that hasn't been resolved yet. The problematic case that was
triggering this issues in the VGIC. It was caused by parameters
looking a bit like this:

gic = Param.GicV2(Parent.any)
some_param = Param.Int(Self.gic.some_param)

When 'some_param' was resolved, it found the 'gic' parameter in
Self. However, that parameter hadn't been resolved yet, so the
existing code was setting the proxy evaluation context to the
unresolved Parent.any proxy without first unproxying it.

It seems like this bug depends on the graph traversal order and I have
so far only seen it when compiling gem5 with Python 3.
