Let me try to rephrase: we check the device is not attached to an MSI
controller (I think this is the semantic of dev_get_msi_domain(dev)).

If it is not, we don't have to care about MSI isolation: there will be
no IOMMU binding between the device and any MSI doorbell. If it is we
check the msi domain is backed by an MSI controller able to perform MSI
isolation.

So effectively "usage of MSIs" is improper - since it is decided after
the group attachment anyway - and the commit message should rather
state "if the device is linked to an MSI controller" (dt msi-parent
notion I think).

Does it sound better?

Regards
