Well, the only harm is if we want to reuse the irq domain.

As of today, we only have DSA mdev which uses the dev-msi domain. In the IRQ domain hierarchy,
We will have this:

Vector-> intel-ir->dev-msi 

So tmrw if we have a new device, which would also want to have the intel-ir as the parent and use the same domain ops, we will simply be creating a copy of this IRQ domain, which may not be very fruitful.

But apart from that, I don't think there are any issues..

What do you think is the best approach here?
