Ok, looking back at some of my original patches, it seems like the
declaration of msi_ops got moved from pci.h to and some forward declarations
in ia64/msi.h were removed.  This patch corrects the build problems.

I think the idea already gets objections.

The reason for putting struct msi_ops in pci.h is so that msi code that
resides outside of drivers/pci can use the declaration without having to
reach down into drivers/pci.
The code in arch/ia64/sn/pci/msi.c looks much like
Why don't you move them to drivers/pci/msi-sgi-sn.c or something?
