msi_cap is also a u8.

But I don't think it's worth changing either of these unless we take a
broader look and see whether they're needed at all.

msi_cap is used to restore the MSI enable bit after a highly
device-specific reset.

pcix_cap is used for some PCI-X configuration that really should be
done via pcix_set_mmrbc() and possibly some sort of quirk for
PCI_X_CMD_MAX_SPLIT.

But that's all pretty messy and I doubt it's worth doing it at this
point, since PCI-X is pretty much ancient history.
