Subject[PATCH] bitmap, irq: Add smp_affinity_list interface to /proc/irq
Subject: bitmap, irq: Add smp_affinity_list interface to /proc/irq

Manually adjusting the smp_affinity for IRQ's becomes unwieldy when the
cpu count is large. Add a companion interface, smp_affinity_list to
use cpu lists instead of cpu maps. This conforms to other companion
interfaces where both a map and a list interface exists.

This required adding a bitmap_parselist_user() function in a manner
similar to the bitmap_parse_user() function.

This time around IRQ44 was delivered only to the last four processors.
