Subject[patch 1/3] x86, intr-remap: set redirection hint in the IRTE
Currently the redirection hint in the interrupt-remapping table entry
is set to 0, which means the remapped interrupt is directed to the
processors listed in the destination. So in logical flat mode
in the presence of intr-remapping, this results in a single
interrupt multi-casted to multiple cpu's as specified by the destination
bit mask. But what we really want is to send that interrupt to one of the cpus
based on the lowest priority delivery mode.

Set the redirection hint in the IRTE to '1' to indicate that we want
the remapped interrupt to be directed to only one of the processors
listed in the destination.

This fixes the issue of same interrupt getting delivered to multiple cpu's
in the logical flat mode in the presence of interrupt-remapping. While
there is no functional issue observed with this behavior, this will
impact performance of such configurations (<=8 cpu's using logical flat
mode in the presence of interrupt-remapping)
