I think I said it at plumbers, but yes, we are interested in this, and
would like dynamic MSI-like interrupts available to the driver (what
Intel calls IMS)

It is something easy enough to illustrate with any RDMA device really,
just open a MR against the addr and use RDMA_WRITE to trigger the
data. It should trigger a Linux IRQ. Nothing else should be needed.
