Is such option really interesting long term?

IIRC PCI Express mandates MSI support, at which point I don't see much
value in being able to compile out the MSI support.

So while maybe helpful for Arm PCI efforts ATM, I'm not sure it
warrants a Kconfig option, I would rather see Arm introduce dummy
helpers for the missing functionality, even if unimplemented at the
moment.

Thanks, Roger.
