Subject[PATCH v4 10/10] NTB: Describe the ntb_msi_test client in the documentation.
Add a blurb in Documentation/ntb.txt to describe the ntb_msi_test tool's
debugfs interface. Similar to the (out of date) ntb_tool description.

+NTB MSI Test Client (ntb\_msi\_test)
+The MSI test client serves to test and debug the MSI library which
+allows for passing MSI interrupts across NTB memory windows. The
+test client is interacted with through the debugfs filesystem:
+* *debugfs*/ntb\_tool/*hw*/
+ A directory in debugfs will be created for each
+ NTB device probed by the tool. This directory is shortened to *hw*
+ below.
+* *hw*/port
+ This file describes the local port number
+* *hw*/irq*_occurrences
+ One occurrences file exists for each interrupt and, when read,
+ returns the number of times the interrupt has been triggered.
+* *hw*/peer*/port
+ This file describes the port number for each peer
+* *hw*/peer*/count
+ This file describes the number of interrupts that can be
+ triggered on each peer
+* *hw*/peer*/trigger
+ Writing an interrupt number (any number less than the value
+ specified in count) will trigger the interrupt on the
+ specified peer. That peer's interrupt's occurrence file
+ should be incremented.
