Hi Sam,

Thanks for the review.

I will fix this building warning in respinning.

About this case, it's kinda tricky for:
- dr_cpu_data() returns void, so alloc_cpumask_var() is no go.

- No idea of the calling context of dr_cpu_data(). IIUC,
dr_cpu_data()
->dr_cpu_configure()
->kzalloc(resp_len, GFP_KERNEL)
So I guess it's in process context?
If consumption above is OK, a simple but _ugly_ solution could be:

How does it sound to you?

It's in irqchip::irq_set_affinity(), which is in atomic context(raw spinlock(s) held),
so dynamic allocation is not a good idea.

My proposal(*untested*) is somewhat complicated for it introduces a new helper.

Is it OK?

Actually I am awared of existence of (at least some of) them, but so far I
have not found a _proper_ way of dealing with them(especially for case of
ds.c).

Please lemme dig into it.

Thanks,
