IIUC, the PRI capability is not specific to SR-IOV, so I don't think
it would make sense to cache PRG Response PASID Required in pci_sriov.

PFs may implement PRI; VFs do not (PCIe r5.0, sec 10.5.2), so I think
the bit should be cached in the pci_dev, and if we want to know the
value for a VF, we should read it from the PF's pci_dev.
