Subject: [PATCH] msix: implement pba write (but read-only)
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

qpci_msix_pending() writes on pba region, causing qemu to SEGV:

(without this patch, this can be reproduced with the ivshmem qtest)

Implement an empty mmio write to avoid the crash.
