Subject[patch] Add allowed_affinity to the irq_desc to make it possible to have restricted irqs
From
Date
[due to a broken libata in current -git I've not been able to test this patch enough]


This patch adds an "allowed_affinity" mask to each interrupt, in addition to the
existing actual affinity mask. In addition this new mask is exported to userspace
in a similar way as the actual affinity is exported. (this is so that irqbalance
can find out about the restriction and take it into account)

The purpose for having this mask is to allow for the situation where interrupts
just can't or shouldn't go to all cpus; one example is the "per cpu" IRQ thing
that powerpc and others have. Another soon-to-come example is MSIX devices that
can generate a different MSI interrupt for each cpu; in that case the MSI needs to
be strictly constrained to it's designated cpu.
