genirq/cpuhotplug: Revert "Set force affinity flag on hotplug migration"
That commit was part of the changes moving x86 to the generic CPU hotplug interrupt migration code. The force flag was required on x86 before the hierarchical irqdomain rework, but invoking set_affinity() with force=true stayed and had no side effects. At some point in the past, the force flag got repurposed to support the exynos timer interrupt affinity setting to a not yet online CPU, so the interrupt controller callback does not verify the supplied affinity mask against cpu_online_mask. Setting the flag in the CPU hotplug code causes the cpu online masking to be blocked on these irq controllers and results in potentially affining an interrupt to the CPU which is unplugged, i.e. instead of moving it away, it's just reassigned to it. As the force flags is not longer needed on x86, it's safe to revert that patch so the ARM irqchips which use the force flag work again. Add comments to that effect, so this won't happen again. Note: The online mask handling should be done in the generic code and the force flag and the masking in the irq chips removed all together, but that's not a change possible for 4.13.
