Initially, I intended to use this function to allocate irqs for both MSI
and multi-MSI case. But I'll simplify this and revisit it again when
adding the multi-MSI.

Since this is calling from gicv2m_setup_msi_irq(), it should only setup
1 MSI interrupt.

I'll clean this up in V10. Thanks for pointing this out.
