OK. Thanks for your confirmation.

OK. How can we do this on the fly from my driver code.
If you have any reference please let me know.
This is required only for experimental purpose to prove the point to be mgmt.
My idea is, from the driver, change the affinity of the whole bank.
So, the GPIO interrupt can be delivered on to this specific CPU bank.
Once I am done, I will revert back to the old bank.
Please give me some hint on how to do this from my kernel module....
