I think that the LPI bitmap is used to mark the valid LPI interrupts
allocated to the PCIe device.

Therefore, for the remaining LPIs, the ITS can reserve entries in the
ITT table, but the bitmap does not need to be set.

Maybe my understanding is wrong, and I'm a little confused about the
function of this bitmap.

yes, you are right. But for Multi-MSI, does it mean that one PCIE device
can own several MSI interrupts?

Another question, is it possible for module driver to use these
remaining LPIs?

For example, in my case

I allcoate 32 MSI with 16 affi-IRQ in it.

MSI can only offer 20 MSIs because online CPU number is 4 and it create
20 msi desc then.

ITS create a its device for this PCIe device and generate a ITT tabel
for 32 MSIs.

so in MSI, it provide 20 valid MSIs, but in ITS, lpi bitmap show that 32
MSI is allocated.

This logic is a bit strange and a little incomprehensible.

Sorry for missing that, I think it can fix my issue too, let me test it
