OK, looks desc->lock is held.

The intent is to isolate the specified CPUs from handling managed interrupt.

For non-managed interrupt, the isolation is done via userspace because
userspace is allowed to change non-manage interrupt's affinity.

We can do that. The big problem is that the RT case can't guarantee that
IO won't be submitted from isolated CPU always. blk-mq's queue mapping
relies on the setup affinity, so un-known behavior(kernel crash, or io
hang, or other) may be caused if we exclude isolated CPUs from interrupt
affinity.

That is why I try to exclude isolated CPUs from interrupt effective affinity,
turns out the approach is simple and doable.


Thanks,
Ming
