Agreed that the warning is fine, the null pointer exception that follows
[1] [2] it however does'nt look right and it can be trivially fixed with the
following fixup for ee90787487bc ("genirq/msi: Provide
msi_device_populate/destroy_sysfs()") below, with that the log looks
like [3] - the warn is good, the null pointer exception and resultant
crash could be avoided (not saying this is the best solution):
