Subject[PATCH] pci: do not try to assign irq 255
The PCI config space reseves a byte for the interrupt line,
so irq 255 actually refers to 'not set'.
However, the 'irq' field for struct pci_dev is an integer,
so the original meaning is lost, causing the system to
assign an interrupt '255', which fails.

So we should _not_ assign an interrupt value here, and
allow upper layers to fixup things.

This patch make PCI devices with MSI interrupts only
(like the xhci device on certain HP laptops) work properly.
