The problem is common to all MSI implementations that end up muxing
all the end-point MSIs into a single interrupt. With these systems,
you cannot set the affinity of individual MSIs (they don't target a
CPU, they target another interrupt... braindead). Only the mux
interrupt can have its affinity changed.

So returning -EINVAL is the right thing to do.
