There are several places in the kernel which check/ask for MSI or MSI-X
interrupts. It would make sense to have a macro which defines all types
of message signalled interrupts, to use in such situations. Add
PCI_IRQ_MSI_TYPES, for this purpose.

To state my objection voices in patch 3 here again:

I think this is a very bad idea.  Everyone knows what MSI and MSI-X
mean and that directly maps to specification.  The new IMS interrupt
scheme from the Intel SIOV spec for example is a message signalled
interrupt type as well and should not be picked up automatically.

If we want to change anything in this area we should probably remove
PCI_IRQ_ALL_TYPES instead..

Thanks, I've resent only the first patch as v4 of the chain, and dropped the rest.

 The flags argument is used to specify which type of interrupt can be used

 A convenient short-hand (PCI_IRQ_ALL_TYPES) is also available to ask for
