I don't know how irqbalance works, and I'm not sure what you are
referring to by BIOS APIC programming, however I would expect these
things would not be a problem.

The MSI code I'm presenting here doesn't do anything crazy with the
interrupts, it allocates and uses them just as any PCI driver would. The
only real difference here is that instead of a piece of hardware sending
the IRQ TLP, it will be sent through the memory window (which, from the
OS's perspective, is just coming from an NTB hardware proxy alias).
