    Subject[PATCH] Export msi_remove_pci_irq_vectors
    As a followup to my previous post about the request_mem_region in
    msi.c, I noticed that the region is only released in
    msi_remove_pci_irq_vectors(). Based on the fact that this function is
    declared in linux/pci.h (and stubbed out if CONFIG_PCI_USE_VECTOR is
    not defined), I'm guessing that the intent is for a device driver to
    unconditionally call this when exiting.

    However, a module can't call msi_remove_pci_irq_vectors unless the
    symbol is exported... so if this is the way to do things, please apply
    this patch.

    On the other hand, MSI-HOWTO.txt seems to imply that the 0th MSI
    vector should be cleaned up just by calling free_irq... so should
    pci_disable_msi be calling msi_remove_pci_irq_vectors?
