It all looks beautiful to me.

If I were merging it, I would change this:

  pci/msi: Add device flag indicating that 64-bit MSIs don't work

to this:

  PCI/MSI: Add device flag indicating that 64-bit MSIs don't work

I'd be happy to merge it, but given what I know now, I would wait and merge
it during the v3.19 merge window.  It sounds like it's more urgent than
that and should be merged earlier, but from the changelogs, it looks like
we're just replacing the powerpc-specific quirk with a more generic one.

So I assume you'll merge it via powerpc unless I hear otherwise.
