No, from the IORT perspective, the input for the ID mappings belonging
to a root complex is the PCI requester ID. The (ITS) DevID is the
ultimate *output* of a root complex mapping.

Whilst you can indeed represent the MC as a black-box Named Component
with an ID mapping range not using the "single mapping" flag, that means
your input IDs come from some device-specific domain beyond the scope of
IORT. That's why you can't easily get away from your special bus
integration code.

...except for single mappings, where the input ID is ignored and the
output ID is the "source", which is exactly what iort_node_get_id()
deals with for devices represented in IORT. With what you're talking
about, "the device" is *not* represented in IORT, but is something
beyond the MC 'bridge'. Now it probably is technically possible to
handle that somehow, but it's definitely not something that the existing
code was ever designed to anticipate.
