That's a heavy work to associate msi_chip with the pci_bus in all platforms,
And only in ARM platform, there are two or more different msi_chips which maybe
associate pci hostbridge or irq chip. In other platforms, only one MSI chip
exists at the same time. Another reason is I don't think associate the msi_chip
with pci bus is a good idea to make PCI device find its own msi_chip.
All PCI devices under the same PCI hostbridge should have the same msi_chip,
and now a property "msi-parent" is defined to help pci hostbridge to find its 
msi_chip. I like to associate the msi_chip with a pci hostbridge. So we don't 
need to
add a lot of pcibios_add_bus() to do that.

I inspected all MSI chip drivers, and found there are two different relations 
between msi_chip and PCI hostbridge
1. MSI chip is a irq chip, like irq_armada_370_xp, PCI hostbridge platform 
device use "msi-parent" to find msi_chip by of_node.
2. MSI chip is integrated into PCI hostbridge, so msi_chip->dev is the PCI 
hostbridge platform device.

So long as we use PCI hostbridge platform device as the parent of PCI 
hostbridge, every PCI device under the hostbridge
can find the msi_chip by it.

All MSI chip drivers now except pci-mvebu have been passed the hostbridge 
platform dev as the parent.
pci_common_init_dev(pcie->dev, &hw);
Pseudo code like:

struct msi_chip *pcibios_find_msi_chip(struct pci_dev *dev)
       struct pci_bus *root;
       struct pci_host_bridge *bridge;
       struct msi_chip *chip;
       struct device_node *node, *msi_node;

       /* First we find msi_chip by the phb of_node */    <-------- MSI chip is 
a irq chip
       root = pci_find_root_bus(dev->bus);
       node = pcibios_get_phb_of_node(root);
       if (node) {
               msi_node = of_parse_phandle(n, "msi-parent", 0);
               if (msi_node)
                       return of_pci_find_msi_chip_by_node(msi_node);

       /* Some msi_chip are integrated into pci hostbridge,
        * we find it by phb device pointer.
       if (bridge && bridge->dev.parent) {              <-----------MSI chip is 
integrated into PCI hostbridge
               list_for_each_entry(chip, &pci_msi_chip_list, list) {
                       if (chip->dev == bridge->dev.parent) {
                               return chip;

        return NULL;
