I'm in favor of having the irqdomain attached to struct device even.
Please keep in mind that going forward PCI will not be the only bus
using MSI. Also having it attached to the device allows you to find the
the domain by just walking up the chain of parent devices until you find
one with an attached domain. A host bridge isn't different in that
regard from any other device. This should work for all platforms AFAICS.
