 I'll see if I can test once amd64-current is buildable again...
 I'm concerned that there are two places where MSI/MSIX enable/disable
 are being done.  Earlier in the life of this PR, MSI/MSIX was disabled
 I kept a test tree which rolled the affected file back so MSI/MSIX was
 enabled.  With the recent import of newer DRMKMS code, the relevant
 portion of the "pci.h" header file was given its own "linux_pci.c" file:
 and I've since kept a local patch to re-enable MSI/MSIX in my test tree.
 I've since seen the following:
 disabling MSI/MSIX in "nouveau_pci.c" specifically.
 I suppose my test tree will need to patch this file as well to test
 MSI/MSIX on nouveau.  (As mentioned early in this PR, I have access to
 one machine which worked fine with nouveau MSI/MSIX enabled while the
 rest did not.  I have not tested recently, but will again as soon as
 I can get amd64-HEAD to build.)
