I assume this is for me?

Could you please clarify? If you are not implementing MSIs, how can a
device signal LPIs? At the end of the day, something has to write into
the RD, and it isn't going to happen by sheer magic.

I really don't get what you are suggesting. Could you please describe
what you have in mind?
