I'm not sure how this is supposed to fix the bug.
I think you will call ssb_pcicore_dev_irqvecs_enable() twice this way.
The call in b44_chip_reset() will still trigger.

Besides that, this only is a theoretical issue, as the function does
only sleep on a PCI-E device. But as b44 PCI-E devices don't exist,
it will never sleep. So I'd rather replace the might_sleep() with a
might_sleep_if() call.
Something like the following:
