Rather than silently break dozens of drivers in mysterious ways,
please invent new function names for the replacements to the
existing pci_enable_msix() and pci_enable_msi_block() functions.

That way, both in-tree and out-of-tree drivers will notice the API change,
rather than having it go unseen and just failing for unknown reasons.

Thanks.
