 Sorry for this add-on, needed time to look at the code.
 Actually, if we don't use this code at all, and implement our own kvm_set_irq_routing()
and kvm_free_irq_routing(), we don't have to bother about all these limitations.
 The simplest thing to do there would be to store GSI number in struct its_itte. In this
case raising an MSI by GSI would not differ from what i currently do.
