[PATCH -tip/apic 1/2] PCI/MSI: Allocate as many multiple-MSIs asrequested

From: Alexander Gordeev
Date: Mon Apr 29 2013 - 00:31:22 EST

When multiple MSIs are enabled with pci_enable_msi_block(), the
requested number of interrupts 'nvec' is rounded up to the nearest
power-of-two value. The result is then used for setting up the
number of MSI messages in the PCI device and allocation of
interrupt resources in the operating system (i.e. vector numbers).
Thus, in cases when a device driver requests some number of MSIs
and this number is not a power-of-two value, the extra operating
system resources (allocated as the result of rounding) are wasted.

This fix introduces 'msi_desc::nvec' field to address the above
issue. When non-zero, it will report the actual number of MSIs the
device will send, as requested by the device driver. This value
should be used by architectures to properly set up and tear down
associated interrupt resources.

Note, although the existing 'msi_desc::multiple' field might seem
redundant, in fact in does not. In general case the number of MSIs a
PCI device is initialized with is not necessarily the closest power-
of-two value of the number of MSIs the device will send. Thus, in
theory it would not be always possible to derive the former from the
latter and we need to keep them both, to stress this corner case.
Besides, since 'msi_desc::multiple' is a bitfield, throwing it out
would not save us any space.
