NO_IRQ strikes back, everybody takes cover! ;-)

More seriously, this seems to be two schools of thoughts on that one.
The irqdomain subsystem seems to treat 'irq == 0' as the indication that
'this is not a valid IRQ', and so does MSI (as you noticed). Given that
this code deals with MSI in conjunction with irqdomains, it felt
natural to adopt the same convention.

Also, not all the architecture are defining NO_IRQ, and it only seems
to be used in code that is doesn't look portable across architectures.
Either these architecture don't care about MSI, or they are happy
enough to consider that virtual interrupt 0 is invalid in the MSI case.

So I'm a bit lost on that one. I sincerely thought NO_IRQ was being
retired (https://lwn.net/Articles/470820/). Should we introduce a
NO_MSI_IRQ (set to zero) to take care of this case?

Thanks,

M.
