igb: assume MSI-X interrupts during initialization

In igb_sw_init() the sequence of calls was changed from

This results in adapter->flags not having the IGB_FLAG_HAS_MSIX bit set
during igb_probe_vfs()->igb_enable_sriov(). Therefore SR-IOV does not
get enabled properly and we run into a NULL pointer if the max_vfs
module parameter is specified (adapter->vf_data does not get allocated,
crash on accessing the structure).

Prevent this by setting the IGB_FLAG_HAS_MSIX bit before calling
igb_probe_vfs(). The real interrupt capabilities will be checked during
igb_init_interrupt_scheme() so this is safe to do.
