SubjectRe: [BUG] tip tree - No irq handler for vector (irq -1)

No. The problem is that this system's logical flat is behaving weird.

Even when the IO-APIC RTE says send the interrupt to cpu-0, it sends the
interrupt to cpu-1 (for which we haven't really initialized the vector
to irq mapping).

Actually this case is documented by Eric Biederman in the code like

static void flat_vector_allocation_domain(int cpu, struct cpumask
/* Careful. Some cpus do not strictly honor the set of cpus
* specified in the interrupt destination when using lowest
* priority interrupt delivery mode.
* In particular there was a hyperthreading cpu observed to
* deliver interrupts to the wrong hyperthread when only one
* hyperthread was specified in the interrupt desitination.
cpumask_bits(retmask)[0] = APIC_ALL_CPUS;

And the previous kernel codes were handling this and my recent changes
to vector assignments broke this behavior. My previous fix addressed a
portion of this issue and hence Zefan's keyboard etc started working.
Nevertheless there is one more corner case which needs to get addressed
and if my understanding is correct, the appended patch (ontop of the
patch that Zefan has already tested) should fix the issue.

Zefan, can you also apply this fix (untested/uncompiled) on top of the
previous fix and see if it resolves the issue? If so, I will add
appropriate changelog, comments and send it tomorrow morning for -tip
consideration after more testing. Thanks.
