IRQ affinity is only supported where interrupts are _directly_ wired to
the GIC. It's the GIC which does the interrupt steering to the CPU
cores.

Interrupts on downstream interrupt controllers (such as GPCV2) have no
ability to be directed independently to other CPUs - the only possible
way to change the mapping is to move _all_ interrupts on that controller,
and any downstream chained interrupts at GIC level.

Hence why Interrupt 295 has no irq_set_affinity function: there is no way
for the interrupt controller itself to change the affinity of the input
interrupt.
