We would like to create devices with correct affinity from the
beginning. For this, we will introduce extension to devlink to control
affinity that will be used prior initialization sequence.

Currently, netdev users who don't want irqbalance are digging into
their procfs, reconfigure affinity on already existing devices and
hope for the best.

This is even more cumbersome for the SIOV use case, where every physical
NIC PCI device will/can create thousands of lightweights netdevs that will
be forwarded to the containers later. These containers are limited to known
CPU cores, so no reason do not limit netdev device too.

The same goes for other sub-functions of that PCI device, like RDMA,
vdpa e.t.c.

I think so.
