genirq: Add force argument to irq_startup()
In order to handle managed interrupts gracefully on irq_startup() so they won't lose their assigned affinity, it's necessary to allow startups which keep the interrupts in managed shutdown state, if none of the assigend CPUs is online. This allows drivers to request interrupts w/o the CPUs being online, which avoid online/offline churn in drivers. Add a force argument which can override that decision and let only request_irq() and enable_irq() allow the managed shutdown handling. enable_irq() is required, because the interrupt might be requested with IRQF_NOAUTOEN and enable_irq() invokes irq_startup() which would then wreckage the assignment again. All other callers force startup and potentially break the assigned affinity. No functional change as this only adds the function argument.
