[RFC PATCH v5 0/4] arm/arm64: fix a migrating irq bug when hotplug cpu

Changes in v5:
 - remove the macro that guard move_irqs()
 - use name irq_migrate_all_off_this_cpu instead of move_irqs

Changes in v4:
 - select GENERIC_IRQ_MIGRATION when config GENERIC_IRQ_MIGRATION is enabled
 - add move_irqs() into kerne/irq/migration.c for cpu hotplug
 - use move_irqs() to migrate interrupts on arm/arm64 when cpu is going to down
 - split bugfix patch into seperate patches for arm and arm64

Changes in v3:
 - introduce config GENERIC_IRQ_MIGRATION for compiling migration.c
 - rename migrate_irqs in arch/ia64/kernel/irq.c to avoid compiling error

Changes in v2:
 - use the exiting helper to set IRQD_MOVE_PCNTXT flag
 - use for_each_active_irq() instead of for_each_irq_desc()
 - add some warn messages when affinity is null or do set affinity failed

Hi All,

There is a bug:

When cpu is disabled, all irqs will be migratged to another cpu.
In some cases, a new affinity is different, it needed to be coppied
to irq's affinity. But if the type of irq is LPI, it's affinity will
not be coppied because of irq_set_affinity's return value.

As Marc and Will suggested, I refactor the arm/arm64 migrating interrupts
code and fix the migrating irq bug while cpu is offline.

I'm trying let the core code do the migrating interrupts matter. kernel/irq/migration.c
depends on CONFIG_GENERIC_PENDING_IRQ, so I introduce config GENERIC_IRQ_MIGRATION for
compiling migration.c. Then add a generic function for migrating interrupts in migration.c.
And then use the function when cpu is going to down on arm and arm64.
