Ok, got it.

Sorry it took me sometime to understand this point(this is why I did not reply
to you at the first time :-)
I thought the defination of the word 'safe' here means, we should
not adjust the irq affinity in the process context if the ISR is
still running, otherwise there might be a race condition.

Currently, there are four drivers would set the force flag to true(AKA,
invoking irq_force_affinity()).

1. exynos4_mct_starting_cpu()
The irq affinity is set before the clockevent is registered,
so there would be no interrupt triggered when adjusting
the irq affinity in the process context. Safe.

2. sirfsoc_local_timer_starting_cpu()
The same as above. Safe.

3. arm_perf_starting_cpu()
During cpu offline, the pmu interrupt(non percpu pmu interrupt)
might be migrated to other online cpus. Then once the same cpu
is put online, the interrupt will be set back to this cpu again
by invoking irq_force_affinity(), but currently the pmu interrupt
might be still running on other cpus, so it would be unsafe to adjust
its irq affinity in the process context?

4. sunhv_migrate_hvcons_irq()
The cpu who encountered a panic needs to migrate the hvcons irq to the
current alive cpu, and send ipi to stop other cpus. So at the time to
adjust the irq affinity for the hvcons, the interrupt of the latter might
be running and it might be unsafe to adjust the irq affinity in the
process context?

Not sure if my understanding is correct, or do I miss something?

thanks,
Yu
