    Subject[PATCH] msi: mask the msix vector before we unmap it.

    With these two lines in the reverse order the drives/block/ccis.c was
    oopsing in msi_free_irqs. Silly us calling writel on an area after
    we unmap it.

    BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address f8b2200c
    printing eip:
    *pdpt = 0000000000003001
    *pde = 0000000037e48067
    *pte = 0000000000000000
