Nothing initializes msi_check...

The problem appears to be that when the pci host driver enables msi
it calls the following:
msi->domain = irq_domain_add_linear(pcie->dev->of_node, INT_PCI_MSI_NR,
&msi_domain_ops, &msi->chip);
The last arg is documented as:
* @host_data: Controller private data pointer
In _irq_domain_add() this ptr is stored in struct irq_domain's host_data.

However, msi_domain_alloc_irqs() expects host_data to be a ptr to a
struct msi_domain_info.

It seems that a number of other pci host drivers do the same, so I am
surprised that no one else has seen this.

Thanks for your help,
