[Patch V1 0/6] Refine generic/PCI MSI irqodmian interfaces

This patch set is based on tip/irq/irqdomain and tries to refine
interfaces to support irqdomain for generic MSI and PCI MSI.

Patch 1 is just minor fixes for tip/irq/irqdomain.

Patch 2 introduces some helpers to hide struct msi_desc implementation
details, so later we could move msi_list from struct pci_dev into
struct device to enable generic MSI support.

Patch 3 introduces msi_domain_{alloc|free}_irqs() which generalize
pci_msi_domain_alloc_irqs() to support generic MSI.

Patch 4 introduces default data structures and callback implementations
to support msi_domain_alloc_irqs(), so reduce burden on generic MSI

Patch 5 converts PCI MSI to use generic MSI interfaces, and also
implement default callbacks for PCI MSI.

Patch 6 introduces a mechanism to replace arch_setup_msi_irq()/

With this patch set applied, the generic MSI and PCI MSI interfaces
are much easier to use. For extreme case, you only need to define
a "struct msi_domain_info" and don't need to implement any callbacks,
just using the default callbacks is OK:)

This patch set is also a preparation for:
1) Kill all weak functions in drivers/pci/msi.c
2) Implement support for non-PCI-compliant MSI device

It has been tested on x86 platforms, comments are welcomed!
