It is very unclear what driver facing API is being proposed here
without a driver code example.

Wow, the commit message for platform-msi.c explains that it is doing
*exactly* the same thing as ims - at least as far as the driver is
concerned.

Clearly the ims idea already exists and the driver facing API should
be harmonized and enhanced to support both PCI and platform devices.

It would also make sense if the arch facing API was harmonized between
ARM and x86 as well. Would updating x86 to use the new generic
msi_domains ARM is using be needed?
