/sys/bus/pci/devices/.../irq has been there for many years but it has never
been documented. This patchset is trying to clarify it.

  - Don't attempt to modify the current behaviour of IRQ ABI for MSI-X
  - Make MSI IRQ ABI more explicit(return 1st IRQ of the IRQ vector)
  - Add Marc's patch of removing default_irq from the previous comment to
    the series.
  Note patch 3/3 indirectly changed the code of pci_restore_msi_state(),
  drivers/net/ethernet/intel/ice/ice_virtchnl_pf.c is the only driver
  calling this API. I would appreciate testing done from this driver's

  - split into two patches according to Bjorn's comments;
  - Add Greg's Acked-by, thanks for reviewing!
