Details about MC bus can be read from here:
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/Documentation/networking/device_drivers/freescale/dpaa2/overview.rst#L324

As stated above, in Linux MC is a bus (just like PCI bus, AMBA bus etc)
There can be multiple devices attached to this bus. Moreover, we can dynamically create/destroy these devices.
Now, we want to represent this BUS (not individual devices connected to bus) in IORT table.
The only possible way right now we see is that we describe it as Named components having a pool of ID mappings.
As and when devices are created and attached to bus, we sift through this pool to correctly determine the output ID for the device.
Now the input ID that we provide, can come from device itself.
Then we can use the Platform MSI framework for MC bus devices.
