Hi,

I found that the driver is responsible for setting GPIO bank in i.MX7:
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v4.2/source/drivers/gpio/gpio-mxc.c

However I still dont know how to set the cpumask for one of the GPIO Bank.

From this link, it seems it is possible to set affinity for a GPIO IRQ.
https://community.nxp.com/thread/303144

But when I try it form my GPIO138 (GPIO5_IO10) it did not help.

So, as you said, I wanted to change affinity for the whole GPIO bank and try it.
Please give me some pointers.

Thanks
