This is remarkably off topic! ;-)

ACPI only provides information for GICv2m and GICv3. No other interrupt
MSI widget or fairy dust provider will be supported on arm64 with ACPI.
So this driver
will be DT only.

GICv2m, being described in the ACPI spec, is growing some support. My
understanding is
that this is done by AMD (Suravee Suthikulpanit) using my
irq/msi-domain branch as a
base (I know that Suravee is looking at expanding the irqdomain
matching code to
accept a pointer to an ACPI table instead of a device node to match the
