I am replying to old message in this conversation, because the discussion got sidetracked from IORT
table to SFP/QSFP/devlink stuff from this point onwards, which is not related to IORT.
I will only focus on representing the MC device in IORT and using the same in linux.
As Ard said:
"IORT supports platform devices (aka named components) as well, and
there is some support for platform MSIs in the GIC layer."

We can represent MC bus as named component in IORT table and use platform MSIs.
The only caveat is that with current implementation of platform MSIs, the Input id of a device is not considered.
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/drivers/irqchip/irq-gic-v3-its-platform-msi.c#L50
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/drivers/acpi/arm64/iort.c#L464

While, IORT spec doesn't specify any such limitation.

we can easily update iort.c to remove this limitation.
But, I am not sure how the input id would be passed from platform MSI GIC layer to IORT.
Most obviously, the input id should be supplied by dev itself.

Any thoughts?

If we go by this path, I think we can remove special handling for fsl-mc for of* cases altogether.
