Subject: [PATCH v2 2/4] pci: don't disable msi/msix at shutdown

This partially reverts commit d52877c7b1afb8c37ebe17e2005040b79cb618b0:
	"pci/irq: let pci_device_shutdown to call pci_msi_shutdown v2"

It's un-necessary now that we disable msi at start, and it actually
turns out to cause problems: some device drivers don't register a level
interrupt handler when they detect msi/msix capability, switching off
msi while device is going causes device to assert a level interrupt
which is never de-asserted, causing a kernel hang.

In particular, this was observed with virtio.
