This has to be fixed up to match the commit message (and for spelling).
I have seen some questions offlist about how important this fix is,
and how it can affect users - so that would be useful to have in the
description as well.

To clarify, this errata comes into play only when the irq affinity is
forced from the node given by the device (and ITS) affinity to another
node. This should not happen in normal, useful configurations.

Also, we will hold further posting of this errata until we do another
round of investigation with the hardware team for a better solution.
If we can handle the pending interrupts for the small window of MOVI/INV
in first workaround, we will not need this restriction at all.

JC.
