I had a thorough look into this and strictly speaking there is no
*mapping* requirement at all, all you need to know is what ITS the FSL
MC bus is mapping MSIs to. Which brings me to the next question (which
is orthogonal to how to model FSL MC in IORT, that has to be discussed
but I want to have a full picture in mind first).

When you probe the FSL MC as a platform device, the ACPI core,
through IORT (if you add the 1:1 mapping as an array of single
mappings) already link the platform device to ITS platform
device MSI domain (acpi_configure_pmsi_domain()).

The associated fwnode is the *same* (IIUC) as for the
you don't need IORT code to retrieve the DOMAIN_BUS_FSL_MC_MSI
domain, the fwnode is the same as the one in the FSL MC platform
device IRQ domain->fwnode pointer and you can use it to
retrieve the DOMAIN_BUS_FSL_MC_MSI domain through it.

Is my reading correct ?

Overall, DOMAIN_BUS_FSL_MC_MSI is just an MSI layer to override the
provide the MSI domain ->prepare hook (ie to stash the MC device id), no
more (ie its_fsl_mc_msi_prepare()).

That's it for the MSI layer - I need to figure out whether we *want* to
extend IORT (and/or ACPI) to defined bindings for "additional busses",
what I write above is a summary of my understanding, I have not made my
mind up yet.

As for the IOMMU code, it seems like the only thing needed is
extending named components configuration to child devices,

As Marc already mentioned, IOMMU and IRQ code must be separate for
future postings but first we need to find a suitable answer to
the problem at hand.
