When device perform a DMA transfer, the order of PCIE inbound requests
will be like this:
1. DMA data get transferred via PCIe inbound request
2. After devices issue DMA transfer request, the device fires an MSI
interrupt by issuing another inbound write to write MSI data to MSI
termination address.

As these 2 requests are transferred via PCIe bus in order, the DMA
data will be all in DDR before the MSI data hit the termination
address to trigger the MSI handler in interrupt handler code.
