I *think* you're saying these devices behave correctly per spec: they
don't support 64-bit MSI, and they don't advertise support for 64-bit
MSI.  Right?

And you want msi_verify_entries() to catch attempts by the arch code
to assign a 64-bit MSI address?

That sounds OK, but the error message ("Device has broken 64-bit MSI")
is not appropriate if the device is actually *not* broken.
