OK I see your point.

I would be fine of the code is changed from:

if (irq <= 0)
  error;

To:

if (irq < 0)
   error retrieving IRQ

if (!irq)
   error driver requires a valid IRQ

To the driver (this one in specific) the IRQ is expected and
necessary and I think it holds for most PCI hosts.

Yours,
