In the of_create_pci_host_bridge of V9, you call the setup function between "pci_create_root_bus()"
and "pci_scan_child_bus()". At that point, I can update the "root_bus->msi" to point to my
"struct msi_chip" which was created during GICv2m initialization
(Please see
Then, when a child bus is created, it propagate this msi_chip pointer from the parent bus.
