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. Allow to restrict the default irq affinity mask. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
