That's the one I was thinking of.
If it was introduced in v2.3 it explains why it is a 'disable' bit.

The v2.2 spec I just found doesn't seem to say anything about the
'reserved' bits. I guess the values are ignored (and probobly read
back as zeros).

In any case it should be implemented by the VGA devices in question.
I guess the kernel should also ensure that MSI and MSI-X interrupts
are also all disabled.
