Oh, I did once know things about mvebu..

I suspect the msi controller pointer assignment is dead code at this
point. The only implementation of MSI with that PCI root port is
drivers/irqchip/irq-armada-370-xp.c which looks like it uses

Actually looks like things are very close to eliminating

This is dead code, can't find a setter for hw_pci->msi_ctrl:

arch/arm/include/asm/mach/pci.h: struct msi_controller *msi_ctrl;
arch/arm/kernel/bios32.c: bridge->msi = hw->msi_ctrl;

This is probably just copying NULL from one place to another:

drivers/pci/controller/pci-mvebu.c: struct msi_controller *msi;

These need conversion to irq_domain (right?):

drivers/pci/controller/pci-hyperv.c: struct msi_controller msi_chip;
drivers/pci/controller/pci-tegra.c: struct msi_controller chip;
drivers/pci/controller/pcie-rcar-host.c: struct msi_controller chip;
drivers/pci/controller/pcie-xilinx.c:static struct msi_controller xilinx_pcie_msi_chip = {

Then the stuff in drivers/pci/msi.c can go away.

So the arch_setup_msi_irq/etc is not really an arch hook, but some
infrastructure to support those 4 PCI root port drivers.
