    Subject[PATCH 0/5] x86, MSI, AHCI: Support multiple MSIs
    Currently multiple MSI mode is limited to a single vector per device (at
    least on x86 and PPC). This series breathes life into pci_enable_msi_block()
    and makes it possible to set interrupt affinity for multiple IRQs, similarly
    to MSI-X. Yet, only for x86 and only when IOMMUs are present.

    Although IRQ and PCI subsystems are modified, the current behaviour left
    intact. The drivers could just start using multiple MSIs just by following
    the existing documentation.

    The AHCI device driver makes use of the new mode and a new function -
    pci_enable_msi_block_auto() - patches 4,5.

    The series is adapted to Ingo's -tip repository, x86/apic branch.
    Patches 4,5 could be applied independently of patches 1-3.

    Attached patches:
    1/5 x86, MSI: Support multiple MSIs in presense of IRQ remapping
    2/5 x86, MSI: Allocate as many multiple IRQs as requested
    3/5 x86, MSI: Minor readability fixes
    4/5 PCI, MSI: Enable multiple MSIs with pci_enable_msi_block_auto()
    5/5 AHCI: Support multiple MSIs
