Looking through the code in virt/kvm/arm/vgic.c, I believe this would
ended up returning -EINVAL or -ENXIO from kvm_vgic_hyp_init().

This was in the "Server Base System Architecture v1.0".

Actually, the current logic for alloc_msi_irq() should do the following:
- Return the next available contiguous block of nvec.
- In case the requested nvec is not available, return the size of
of the largest available range, since the for loop always call the
"bitmap_find_next_zero_area()" from the first index of the bitmap.
Actually, let me just add the code for multiple MSIs, which should be
making use of this function also in the V3 patch set. That way, it
would be clear.
