Can you please provide the following information, before and after
offlining the last CPU in the affinity set:

# cat /proc/irq/$IRQNUM/smp_affinity_list
# cat /proc/irq/$IRQNUM/effective_affinity
# cat /sys/kernel/debug/irq/irqs/$IRQNUM

The last one requires: CONFIG_GENERIC_IRQ_DEBUGFS=y

Thanks,

tglx
