I‘d like to check with Christoph again first.

Hi Christoph,

Jason will post some patches to get rid of the DMA API for vDPA
simulators. And the irq affinity algorithm is independent of the IRQ
subsystem IIUC. So could you allow this patch so that we can reuse the
algorithm to select the best CPU (per-cpu affinity if possible, or at
least per-node) to run the virtqueue's irq callback.

Thanks,
Yongji
