That seems like an unfortunate design choice on their part.. well that
would probably argue against adding this as a hard dependency then, if
non-MSI-supporting PCIe devices can't work with default boot options
with that set.

I'm looking into testing with an NXP Smart Devices board and some PCIe
cards to see if I can verify whether MSI works on those or not, since we
currently don't have a way to independently verify that the MSI
implementation in our FPGA is working or whether another PCIe device
works with MSI (the FPGA is integrated on the system board).
