Whee.... that's a lot more than I expected.  I was just scanning
multiple msi users.  Maybe we can stage the work in more manageable
steps so that you don't have to go through massive conversion only to
do it all over again afterwards and likewise people don't get
bombarded on each iteration?  Maybe we can first update pci / msi code
proper, msi and then msix?

Thanks.
