Hmm... It's really weird.
I don't think it's the interrupt controllers' responsibility to write messages
for all the endpoint devices since the methods of configuring message registers
may different between these devices. And theoretically, the endpoint devices
themselves should take the responsibility to configure their message registers.
To say the least, the write_msg callback here still need to call some certain
interfaces provided by the corresponding device.
There would be lots of ARM new devices capable of sending message based interrupts
to interrupt controllers, does all the drivers of the devices need to expose a
write_msg callback to interrupt controllers?

Abel
