OK. Thanks so much for your reply.

I saw some of the drivers using irq_set_affinity_hint() to force the
IRQ affinity to a particular CPU.
This is the sample:
{
cpumask_clear(mask);
cpumask_set_cpu(cpu, mask);
irq_set_affinity_hint(irq, mask);
}

Whether this logic will work for a particular GPIO pin ?
