all of them: spinlock, timer, resched, callfunc, ...

it was implemented: (drivers/xen/event.c, rebind_irq_to_cpu)
/*
* If this fails, it usually just indicates that we're dealing with a
* virq or IPI channel, which don't actually need to be rebound. Ignore
* it, but don't do the xenlinux-level rebind in that case.
*/
if (HYPERVISOR_event_channel_op(EVTCHNOP_bind_vcpu, &bind_vcpu) >= 0)
bind_evtchn_to_cpu(evtchn, tcpu);
Hypervisor doesn't allow to change affinity for virq and ipi.
Thanks,
Kevin
