Why? mdev devices are virtual they don't have HW elements.

The caller should use the concrete pci_device to allocate
platform_msi? What is preventing this?

But this is all code already intended to be used by the platform, why
is it in drivers/base?

It seems we have a name, this is called platform_msi in Linux?
