Another option might be a new hypercall (assuming one doesn't already

pci_bus_add function, which might be doable (more doable than handling
xen_segment_id DT properties I think).
This seems ok, i will try it out.
I recommend you let this subthread (e.g. the conversation with Jan)
settle upon a preferred course of action before implementing any one
Ian we have also to consider for NUMA / multi node where there are two or more its nodes.

msi-parent = <&its0>;


msi-parent = <&its1>;

This requires parsing pci nodes in xen and create a mapping between pci nodes and its. Xe would need to be aware of PCI nodes in device tree prior to dom0 sending a hypercall. Adding a property to pci node in device tree should be a good approach.
