Delta patch below.

You need that irq-metag part in any case as the user space interface
does not filter out stuff. Assume you offlined core 1 and user changes
affinity from 0xf to 0xe. So your selector will pick core 1 which is

Btw, our handling of this is a bit awkward. Right now we let the user

echo 0xf > /proc/irq/$N/smp_affinity

and reading that back will give you 0xf though the kernel just selects
a subset or even a single target cpu and one has to analyze
/proc/interrupts to find out which one.

We should add some mechanism to tell the user what's really going on.
But that's a separate issue.
