Can you please try against 4.19-rc2 or later?

The cpu list is irrelevant because that's the allowed affinity mask. The
effective one is what counts.

So if all 16 have their effective affinity set to CPU0 then that's strange
at least.

Can you please provide the output of /sys/kernel/debug/irq/domains/VECTOR ?

Well, we surely can do the initial allocation and spreading on the local
numa node, but once all CPUs are offline on that node, then the whole thing
goes down the drain and allocates from where it sees fit. I'll think about
it some more, especially how to avoid the proliferation of the affinity
