Are you *really* associating the MSI domain on a per pci-device basis?
That is, you have devices on the same PCI bus talking to different MSI hw?

Forget about msi_controller, the whole goal of this series is to make it
obsolete. On your x86 platform, what how do you identify which MSI
domain should be associated with a given PCI device? Surely you must
have a set of data structures or ACPI tables which give you that

Let me rephrase that in a non-ambiguous manner: can you point me to a
file implementing this in mainline?
