Yes, it's host stuff. This is used by the virtio device driver to pass
the irq affinity hint (tell which irq vectors don't need affinity
management) to the irq affinity manager. In the VM case, it should
only be related to the guest's virtio device driver and pci irq
affinity manager. So I don't get why we need to do this in vhost-vDPA.

Can we only call it in the virtio-vdpa case? Thus the vdpa device
driver can know whether it needs to do the automatic irq affinity
management or not. In the vhost-vdpa case, we actually don't need the
irq affinity management.

Thanks,
