Introduce a new DOMAIN_ATTR_MSI_MAPPING domain attribute. If supported,
this means the MSI addresses need to be mapped in the IOMMU.

x86 IOMMUs typically don't expose the attribute since on x86, MSI write
transaction addresses always are within the 1MB PA region [FEE0_0000h -
FEF0_000h] window which directly targets the APIC configuration space and
hence bypass the sMMU. On ARM and PowerPC however MSI transactions are
conveyed through the IOMMU.

v4 -> v5:
- introduce the user in the next patch

RFC v1 -> v1:
- the data field is not used
- for this attribute domain_get_attr simply returns 0 if the MSI_MAPPING
  capability if needed or <0 if not.
- removed struct iommu_domain_msi_maps
