Yes, affinity mask are CPUs which can take but there is also effective
affinity mask which represent CPUs which will actually receive IRQ.

Interrupt controllers (unlike PLIC) can support hardware IRQ balancing.
For such interrupt controllers, we inform all CPUs that can take IRQ but
interrupt controller will only deliver IRQ to only one of the CPUs.

There are quite a few interrupt controllers which only allow IRQ to
be taken by exactly one CPU. For such interrupt controllers, the
interrupt controller driver has to to pick one CPU out of CPUs which
can take IRQ (Example GICv2, GICv3, etc).

Sure, will update.

Sure, will update.
