The reason seems to be the following code in the allocator:

WARN_ON(nr_irqs != 1);

bit = find_first_zero_bit(msi->msi_irq_in_use, msi->num_of_vectors);
if (bit >= msi->num_of_vectors) {
return -ENOSPC;

set_bit(bit, msi->msi_irq_in_use);

So instead of fixing the allocator, the author prefers disabling
the feature. I'm not sure whether that is an acceptable outcome...
