Per the comment in the code snippet above, "If we can't get all 4,
then we can't use MSI-X". There is already a check to see if more
than 4 were acquired. So it's not possible to hit this. Even if it
was, don't use SNB_MSIX_CNT here (limits.msix_cnt is the preferred
variable). Also, the "()" are unnecessary.

Thanks,
Jon
