    - The current situation is broken
    - In spec hardware does not require MSI to generate interrupts
    Which leaves enabling MSI optional.

    Do you have a better idea to solve the current brokenness?

    MSI appears to have enough problems that enabling it in a kernel
    that is supposed to run lots of different hardware (like a distro
    kernel) is a recipe for disaster.
