genirq/cpuhotplug: Handle managed IRQs on CPU hotplug
If a CPU goes offline, interrupts affine to the CPU are moved away. If the outgoing CPU is the last CPU in the affinity mask the migration code breaks the affinity and sets it it all online cpus. This is a problem for affinity managed interrupts as CPU hotplug is often used for power management purposes. If the affinity is broken, the interrupt is not longer affine to the CPUs to which it was allocated. The affinity spreading allows to lay out multi queue devices in a way that they are assigned to a single CPU or a group of CPUs. If the last CPU goes offline, then the queue is not longer used, so the interrupt can be shutdown gracefully and parked until one of the assigned CPUs comes online again. Add a graceful shutdown mechanism into the irq affinity breaking code path, mark the irq as MANAGED_SHUTDOWN and leave the affinity mask unmodified. In the online path, scan the active interrupts for managed interrupts and if the interrupt is functional and the newly online CPU is part of the affinity mask, restart the interrupt if it is marked MANAGED_SHUTDOWN or if the interrupts is started up, try to add the CPU back to the effective affinity mask.
