Applied for version 1.7.1.

There are still some compilation issues with RHEL:
include/linux/pci.h:1572: note: previous declaration of ‘pci_num_vf’ was here
include/linux/pci.h:868: note: previous declaration of ‘pci_intx_mask_supported’ was here
include/linux/pci.h:869: note: previous declaration of ‘pci_check_and_mask_intx’ was here

Some ifdefs are missing but I don't want to dig into RHEL kernel headers to
find what is the first RHEL release to support these functions.
By the way, if someone knows an easy method to get all RHEL kernel headers
or to know the release where a symbol appeared, it would be very useful.
