Hi, Thomas,

I don't think "nvecs == affd->pre_vectors + affd->post_vectors" is an ERROR,
so it should be different with "return NULL for other reasons" to the caller. If
the caller fallback from MSI-X to MSI, it is probably "nvecs=1,pre_vectors=1,
post_vectors=0". The caller can work perfectly, if pre/post vectors are filled
with the default affinity.
