The device is managed or not by check whether "dr" is NULL. And
check the "dr->enabled" is for the PCI device enable. I think it
may not make sense to apply for irq vectors when PCI device is not

PCI device enable by call pci_enable_device() function, this function
initialize device before it's used by a driver. Ask low-level code
to enable I/O and memory. Wake up the device if it was suspended.

So I think it might be better to return to failure when it is found
the PCI device is not enabled in the pcim_alloc_irq_vectors() function.
It can facilitate developers to find problems as soon as possible.
