That should at least initially be true for a proper functioning
driver. It's not enforced as you mentioned, but that's only related to
the issue I'm referring to.

The problem is pci_alloc_irq_vectors_affinity() takes a range, min_vecs
and max_vecs, but a range of allowable vector allocations doesn't make
sense when using sets.
