The GIC bindings already use similar abstractions, see what we do for
both GICv2m and GICv3 MBIs. Other MSI controllers use similar
properties (alpine and loongson, for example).

And that's where I beg to differ, again.

Specifying interrupts like this gives the false impression that these
interrupts are generated by the device that owns them (the RC). Which
for MSIs is not the case. This is not only verbose, this is
semantically dubious. And what should we do when the number of
possible interrupt is ridiculously large, as it is for the GICv3 ITS?

I wish we had a standard way to express these constraints. Until we
do, I don't think enumerating individual interrupts is a practical
thing to do, nor that it actually represents the topology of the
system.

Thanks,

	M.
