Does that crash the Linux kernel?

If it fixes a crash(?), please add a Fixes: tag so it can be backported
to the stable series.

From a quick look, these two functions are quite different. It’d be
great if you elaborated a bit in the commit message, what else the new
function does.

Also, with this change, `pqi_request_irqs()` does not seem to have any
users anymore. Without your patch:

$ git grep pqi_request_irqs
drivers/scsi/smartpqi/smartpqi_init.c:static int
pqi_request_irqs(struct pqi_ctrl_info *ctrl_info)
drivers/scsi/smartpqi/smartpqi_init.c: rc =
pqi_request_irqs(ctrl_info);

Kind regards,

Paul
