I already hinted at that in one of the other subthreads. Having such a
multiplex would also allow the driver to be built as a module. I had
already thought about this when I was working on an earlier version of
these patches. Basically these would be two ops attached to the host
bridge, and the generic arch_setup_msi_irq() could then look that up
given the struct pci_dev that is passed to it and call this new per-
host bridge .setup_msi_irq().
