The canonical way of doing this is by the platform expressing that
there is no linkage between the PCIe RC and the MSI controller.  If
there is no MSI domain associated with the RC, then by extension the
endpoints don't get one either.

There are additional quirks linked to the msi_domain host bridge
property, allowing the host bridge driver to indicate that it isn't in
charge of MSIs, but that a third party may provide it (in which case a
MSI irq domain will be associated with it).

In any case, slapping a pci_no_msi() call in an irqchip driver is
gross and most probably a sign that this is going in the wrong
direction, specially as this is platform-wide.

The only cases I'd expect this function to be called are:

- Platform or firmware explicitly disallowing MSIs
- pci=nomsi on the command line

none of which are the business of an irqchip driver.



Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
