Not really, I think it's not the first time we've discussed this. But
as I see things over and over, my tolerance for another instance
without solving the problem for everyone diminishes. And what other
leverage do I have?

Additionally, how long we have to support something comes into play. I
have no idea for a Loongson MSI controller. I have a better idea on an
Apple product...

So we've had the same kind of property for interrupt multiplexers. I'm
fine if you think an 'MSI to interrupts mapping property' should be
named something else.

I don't really either. I just don't want 10 ways AND another...

Yes, certainly. Worst case is a map.

Maybe just this is enough:
msi-ranges = <intspec base>, <length>, <intspec base>, <length>, ...

While I say 'length' here, that's really up to the interrupt parent to
interpret the intspec cells.

Not my itch.
