Guilty as charged - the suggestion was definitely borne out of
convenience. I originally looked at adding this functionality to the MSI
domains but couldn't find an obvious way to enumerate all of them.

Also, the way the domain hierarchy is setup for MSI controllers, the
actual doorbell is not available to the MSI domains.

Ok, makes sense.

Is that the alternative to reporting the aperture size that needs to be
reserved?
