Which requires the caller of the ITS command to explicitly pass the
collection ID...

It complicates the caller for nothing and requires you to have
explicitely irqdesc helpers.

Anyway, I don't see any reason to differ from Linux and AFAICT Ian was
also in favor of using the same approach as Linux (i.e the one in the
commit "irqchip/gicv3-its: Fix mapping of LPIs to collections").
