Subject: [PATCH] genirq: Add default affinity mask command line option
Date: Wed, 3 Feb 2016 19:52:23 +0100 (CET)
Message-ID: <alpine.DEB.2.11.1602031948190.25254@nanos> (raw)

Subject: genirq: Add default affinity mask command line option

If we isolate CPUs, then we don't want random device interrupts on them. Even
w/o the user space irq balancer enabled we can end up with irqs on non boot
cpus and chasing newly requested interrupts is a tedious task.

Allow to restrict the default irq affinity mask.
