Indeed, MSI was not enabled so turning it on got rid of the MSI message.

Here is the new stuff in dmesg from the code stub above:

Hopefully I put it in the way you intended me to do:

if (retval) {
printk(KERN_ERR "ioremap reserve_memtype failed %d\n", retval);

printk(KERN_ERR "phys_addr: %#Lx, size: %#Lx\n",
(u64)phys_addr, (u64)size);
return NULL;

Seems like maybe you would want symbols or something. If so then
please let me know how to turn that on and I'll give it a try.
