Subject: [PATCH v2 4/7] irqchip/gic-v3-its: Don't map the MSI page in its_irq_compose_msi_msg()

its_irq_compose_msi_msg() may be called from non-preemptible context.
However, on RT, iommu_dma_map_msi_msg requires to be called from a
preemptible context.

A recent change split iommu_dma_map_msi_msg() in two new functions:
one that should be called in preemptible context, the other does
not have any requirement.

The GICv3 ITS driver is reworked to avoid executing preemptible code in
non-preemptible context. This can be achieved by preparing the MSI
maping when allocating the MSI interrupt.
