Subject[PATCH v2] [BUGFIX] x86/x86_64: fix CPU offlining triggered active device IRQ interrruption

Impact: Eliminates an issue that can leave the system in an
unusable state.

This patch addresses an issue where device generated IRQs
are no longer seen by the kernel following IRQ affinity
migration while the device is generating IRQs at a high rate.

I have been able to consistently reproduce the problem on
some of our systems by running the following script (VICTIM_IRQ
specifies the IRQ for the aic94xx device) while a single instance
of the command
# while true; do find / -exec file {} \;; done
is keeping the filesystem activity and IRQ rate reasonably high.
#!/bin/sh

SYS_CPU_DIR=/sys/devices/system/cpu
VICTIM_IRQ=25
IRQ_MASK=f0

iteration=0
while true; do
echo $iteration
echo $IRQ_MASK > /proc/irq/$VICTIM_IRQ/smp_affinity
for cpudir in $SYS_CPU_DIR/cpu[1-9] $SYS_CPU_DIR/cpu??; do
echo 0 > $cpudir/online
done
for cpudir in $SYS_CPU_DIR/cpu[1-9] $SYS_CPU_DIR/cpu??; do
echo 1 > $cpudir/online
done
iteration=`expr $iteration + 1`
done
The root cause is a known issue already addressed for some
code paths [e.g. ack_apic_level() and the now obsolete
migrate_irq_remapped_level_desc()] where the ioapic can
misbehave when the I/O redirection table register is written
while the Remote IRR bit is set.

The proposed fix uses the same avoidance method and much
of same code that the Interrupt Remapping code previously
used to avoid the same problem.

Successfully tested with Ingo's linux-2.6-tip (32 and 64-bit
builds) on the IBM x460, x3550 M2, x3850, and x3950 M2.

v2: modified to integrate with Yinghai Lu's
"irq: change ->set_affinity() to return status" changes
to intersecting/related code.
