Why isn't this more strongly typed? pci_host_bridge_msi_domain()
definitely expects this to be the real thing. And the comment is
wrong.

Urgh. This is a perfect copy paste of the x86 horror, warts and all.
I can't say I'm thrilled (another way to say "Gawd, Noes! Never!").

One thing I am sure of is that I do not want to add more custom
indirection to build the MSI topology. We barely got rid of the
msi_controller structure, and this is the same thing by another
name. Probably worse, actually.

In this case, I don't see the point in going via a fwnode indirection
given that there is no firmware tables the first place.

As for finding the irq domain from the host bridge, that's not doable
in most cases on arm64, as it is pretty likely that the host bridge
knows nothing about MSIs when they are implemented in the GIC (see my
recent msi_controller removal series that has a few patches about
that).

Having an optional callback to host bridges to obtain the MSI domain
may be possible in some cases though (there might be a chicken/egg
problem for some drivers though...).

Thanks,

	M.
