If pci_alloc_irq_vectors() returns OK, driver may think everything
is just fine, and configure the related hw queues(such as enabling irq
on queues), and finally irq comes and no CPU can handle them.

Also I think there may not drivers which check if the CPUs assigned
for irq vectors are online or not, and seems never a job which is
supposed to do by driver.
