Actually, we need something better than that. You cannot define
arch_setup_msi_irq in a tegra specific pci host driver, because that
will seriously mess up other platforms in multiplatform configurations
by giving a link error when they also define this function, or with a
run-time error when they don't support it.

I think what we should do here is fix it the right way by adding
a pci host specific callback rather than an architecture specific
callback in drivers/pci/msi.c. There is already a default version
of arch_setup_msi_irqs (with s), and we can probably do the
same for arch_setup_msi_irq (without s) to fall back to the
arch version for most architectures.
Most architectures (at least powerpc, sparc, ia64 and x86) already
multiplex the msi handlers internally, but ARM does not because
there is only one implementation (iop33x) at the moment.

We can add a generix multiplex and then move architectures over to
use it.
