That's fine. I just don't like how this patch makes the driver more
complex. If we're making things simpler lets not expose msix internal
details and just fallback to msi directly without worrying about the
number of vectors. I think the msix_single_vector intermediate step
should go.

...and now that I look I see a bug in ioat3_irq_reinit.

Ok, then just this piece for now, but more preferable to fold it into
a msix_single_vector removal patch.

- if (err < 0)
+ if (err)
goto msi;
- if (err > 0)
- goto msix_single_vector;
