Well, this hypercall doesn't do pirq_guest_unbind() on IO-APIC-routed
interrupts either, so I think the problem is wider ranging than just MSI
interrupts. Consider unmap_irq() followed by pirq_guest_unbind() later.
We'll BUG_ON(vector == 0) in the latter function. Looks a bit of a mess to
me. I would say that if there are bindings remaining we should re-direct the
event-channel to a 'no-op' pirq (e.g., -1) and indeed call
pirq_guest_unbind() or similar.
