An UP kernel does not ever look on the affinity mask. The
chip::irq_set_affinity() callback is not invoked so the mask is
irrelevant.

A SMP kernel on a UP machine sets CPU0 in the mask so all is good.

Which is not a problem either. The affinity mask is only relevant for
setting the affinity, but it's not relevant for delivery and never can
be.

As long as the affinity mask becomes not part of the event channel magic
this should never matter.

Look at it from hardware:

interrupt is affine to CPU0

     CPU0 runs:
     
     set_affinity(CPU0 -> CPU1)
        local_irq_disable()
        
 --> interrupt is raised in hardware and pending on CPU0

        irq hardware is reconfigured to be affine to CPU1

        local_irq_enable()

 --> interrupt is handled on CPU0

the next interrupt will be raised on CPU1

So info->cpu which is registered via the hypercall binds the 'hardware
delivery' and whenever the new affinity is written it is rebound to some
other CPU and the next interrupt is then raised on this other CPU.

It's not any different from the hardware example at least not as far as
I understood the code.

Thanks,

        tglx
