Okay, I had assumed that ARM_GIC_V2M (which selects PCI_MSI) was user-
visible and hence could be disabled. But it's not, and always enabled on
ARM64. On 32-bit we already explicitly enable PCI_MSI via the default
configurations.

I withdraw my concerns. I see that Lorenzo already applied the patch, so
just for the record:
