We need to ensure that there are no pending MSI IRQ vector set (i.e
PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS reads 0 at least once) before exiting
dra7xx_pcie_msi_irq_handler(). Else, the dra7xx PCIe wrapper will not
register new MSI IRQs even though PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS shows IRQs are
pending. Therefore, keep calling dra7xx_pcie_msi_irq_handler() until it
returns IRQ_NONE, which suggests that PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS is 0.

This fixes a bug, where PCIe wifi cards with 4 DMA queues like Intel
8260 used to throw following error and stall during ping/iperf3 tests.

[   97.776310] iwlwifi 0000:01:00.0: Queue 9 stuck for 2500 ms.

I am not merging any code patching this IRQ handling routine anymore
unless you thoroughly explain to me how this CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI register
works (and how it is related to DW registers) and why this specific host
controller needs handling that is not required by any other host
controller relying on dw_handle_msi_irq().

I suspect there is a code design flaw with the way this host handles
IRQs and we are going to find it and fix it the way it should, not with
any plaster like this patch.

Unlike other DW PCIe controllers, TI implementation has a wrapper on top
of DW core. This wrapper latches the DW core level MSI and legacy
interrupts and then propagates it to GIC.
PCIECTRL_DRA7XX_CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI register is present in this TI
wrapper which aggregates all the MSI IRQs(PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS) of DW
level. They are mapped on the MSI interrupt line of PCIe controller,
using a single status bit in the PCIECTRL_TI_CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI register.

So, the irq handler, dra7xx_pcie_msi_irq_handler(), first needs to look
at PCIECTRL_DRA7XX_CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI[4] to know that its MSI IRQ and
then call dw_handle_msi_irq() to handle individual MSI vectors.
Driver has to make sure there are no pending vectors in DW core MSI
status register before exiting handler. Otherwise next MSI IRQ will not
be latched by the wrapper.

I agree there has been some churn wrt this wrapper level IRQ handler.
But, that was because hardware documentation/TRM did not match
actual behavior and so it took some time to understand how the
hardware is working. I have extensively tested this series on multiple
problematic PCIe USB cards and PCIe WiFi cards over week long stress
tests. And also had some agreement with internal hardware designers.
Hardware documentations will also be updated.
