This seems like a pretty good idea, though it requires that the
device's IRQ code cast the struct device to some driver specific
subtype, like mdev in this case.

Well, I certainly wouldn't put any IDXD specific words like PASID in
the general API. The comingling of PASID with the rest of the IRQ
registers is entirely a device specific choice.

Most likely something like mlx5 is going to want to associate a
pointer with the irq, and I believe it could use a struct device just
