I would suspect that most boards specify the reset polarity the wrong
way around. Fixing this without breaking DT stability is hard. OTOH we
could just argue that the system description in DT is wrong and needs to
be fixed.

Is this working with v4.4 and PCI_MSI enabled? I'm sure I've tested MSI
IRQs before enabling them in the defconfig and they have been working
for me for a long time before that. Tested with i210 on Gateworks

Please test if MSI IRQs work with v4.4. I'll take a look at this later
