[PATCH v5 16/17] vfio/type1: Check MSI remapping at irq domain level

In case the IOMMU does not bypass MSI transactions (typical
case on ARM), we check all MSI controllers are IRQ remapping
capable. If not the IRQ assignment may be unsafe.

At this stage the arm-smmu-(v3) still advertise the
IOMMU_CAP_INTR_REMAP capability at IOMMU level. This will be
removed in subsequent patches.
