Dear Marc,

thank you for your answer. Still:

What about when we want to set the same affinity for all the chained
interrupts?

Example: on Armada 385 there are 4 PCIe controllers. Each controller
has one interrupt from which we trigger chained interrupts. We would
like to configure each controller to trigger interrupt (and thus all
chained interrupts in the domain) on different CPU core.

Moreover we would really like to do this in runtime, through sysfs,
depending on for example whether there are cards plugged in the PCIe
ports.

Maybe there should be some mechanism to allow to change affinity for
whole irqdomain, or something?

Marek
