[PATCH 4/4] irqchip: sifive-plic: Implement irq_set_affinity() for SMP host

Currently on SMP host, all CPUs take external interrupts routed via
PLIC. All CPUs will try to claim a given external interrupt but only
one of them will succeed while other CPUs would simply resume whatever
they were doing before. This means if we have N CPUs then for every
external interrupt N-1 CPUs will always fail to claim it and waste
their CPU time.

Instead of above, external interrupts should be taken by only one CPU
and we should have provision to explicity specify IRQ affinity from
kernel-space or user-space.

This patch provides irq_set_affinity() implementation for PLIC driver.
It also updates irq_enable() such that PLIC interrupts are only enabled
for one of CPUs specified in IRQ affinity mask.

With this patch in-place, we can change IRQ affinity at any-time from
user-space using procfs.

Example:

/ # cat /proc/interrupts
           CPU0       CPU1       CPU2       CPU3
  8:         44          0          0          0  SiFive PLIC   8  virtio0
 10:         48          0          0          0  SiFive PLIC  10  ttyS0
IPI0:        55        663         58        363  Rescheduling interrupts
IPI1:         0          1          3         16  Function call interrupts
/ #

/ # echo 4 > /proc/irq/10/smp_affinity
/ #
/ # cat /proc/interrupts
           CPU0       CPU1       CPU2       CPU3
  8:         45          0          0          0  SiFive PLIC   8  virtio0
 10:        160          0         17          0  SiFive PLIC  10  ttyS0
IPI0:        68        693         77        410  Rescheduling interrupts
IPI1:         0          2          3         16  Function call interrupts
