Hmm, so this commit indicates that series 6 raid cards should be always using
MSI interrupts regardless of that msi param:
https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/9022d375bd22869ba3e5ad3635f00427cfb934fc

However it appears that the aac_msi check wasn't removed here, maybe it
should have been?:
https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/v6.1/drivers/scsi/aacraid/rx.c#L647
