The GPCv2 though is a secondary IRQ controller which has a 1:1 mapping
of its input IRQs to the upstream GIC IRQ lines. Affinity can thus be
handled by forwarding the request to the GIC by
irq_chip_set_affinity_parent().

As this is handled correctly in the upstream kernel since the first
commit introducing support for the GPCv2, it seems the issue is only
present in some downstream kernel.
