I think that's a plaster as ineffective as reordering nodes, in short
it is not a solution and you still rely on kernel link ordering, you
can fiddle with ACPI tables as much as you want but that does not change.

That's a tad vague to be frank, anyway it is pretty clear to me that we
have hit a wall. In ACPI there is no way to describe probe dependencies
like the one you have, it is as simple as that, and this MSI issue you
are facing is just an example, there are more eg:

https://www.spinics.net/lists/arm-kernel/msg585825.html

At the end of the day the choice is simple either we accept (and we
maintain because that's the problem) these hacks - and I am not willing
to do that - or we find a way to solve this from a general perspective not
as a point hack.

I can have a look at solving the whole issue but it won't happen
tomorrow.

Thanks,
Lorenzo
