Subject[PATCH] pci: Handle the case when PCI_COMMAND register hasn't changed in INTx masking test
The check for interrupt masking support is done by reading
the PCI_COMMAND config word

pci_read_config_word(dev, PCI_COMMAND, &orig);

then flipping the PCI_COMMAND_INTX_DISABLE bit and writing result back

pci_write_config_word(dev, PCI_COMMAND,

The expected result is that following read of the PCI_COMMAND

pci_read_config_word(dev, PCI_COMMAND, &new);

returns PCI_COMMAND with only PCI_COMMAND_INTX_DISABLE bit changed.

There are two possible outcomes:

1. Command is the same (hasn't changed)
2. Commmand has changed

And the second of them may be decoupled to:

2.1 Command changed only for PCI_COMMAND_INTX_DISABLE bit
(hasn't changed for bits different than PCI_COMMAND_INTX_DISABLE)
2.2 Command changed for bit(s) different than PCI_COMMAND_INTX_DISABLE bit
(and maybe for PCI_COMMAND_INTX_DISABLE too)

The 2.1 is expected result and anything else is error.
The 2.2 outcome is handled by pci_intx_mask_supported by printing
appropriate message to the log, but outcome 1 is not handled.

Log the message about command not being changed at all.
