Sorry, I really don't understand this, so these are probably stupid

If CONFIG_PCI_MSI_ARCH_FALLBACKS is defined, we will supply
implementations of:

  default_teardown_msi_irqs    # non-weak

You select CONFIG_PCI_MSI_ARCH_FALLBACKS for ia64, mips, powerpc,
s390, sparc, and x86.  I see that all of those arches implement at
least one of the functions above.  But x86 doesn't and I can't figure
out why it needs to select CONFIG_PCI_MSI_ARCH_FALLBACKS.

I assume there's a way to convert these arches to hierarchical irq
domains so they wouldn't need this at all?  Is there a sample
conversion to look at?

And I can't figure out what's special about tegra, rcar, and xilinx
that makes them need it as well.  Is there something I could grep for
to identify them?  Is there a way to convert them so they don't need
