Subject[PATCH 6/8] x86: apic: Avoid useless scanning thru a cpumask in assign_irq_vector()
In case of static vector allocation domains (i.e. flat) if all vector
numbers are exhausted, an attempt to assign a new vector will lead to
useless scans through all CPUs in the cpumask, even though it is known
that each new pass would fail. Make this corner case less painful by
letting report whether the vector allocation domain depends on passed
arguments or not and stop scanning early.

The same could have been achived by introducing a static flag to the
apic operations. But let's allow vector_allocation_domain() have more
intelligence here and decide dynamically, in case we would need it in
the future.
