Your change log confused me. The change below is not from a "recent
re-design", it is required due to an earlier patch in this patch set.

I will re-review.

NACK.  This change does not do anything logically as far as I can tell.
pci_enable_msix in the current upstream kernel itself calls
pci_msix_table_size.  The current code yields the same resultswill
as the code suggested below. (i.e., the suggested code has no effect on
optimality).

BTW, pci_msix_table_size never returns a value < 0 (if msix is not
enabled, it returns 0 for the table size), so the (err < 0) check here
is not correct. (I also do not like using "err" here anyway for the
value returned by pci_msix_table_size().  There is no error here, and
it is simply confusing.
