Subject: [PATCH] - SN: validate smp_affinity mask on intr redirect

On SN, only allow one bit to be set in the smp_affinty mask
when redirecting an interrupt. Currently setting multiple
bits is allowed, but only the first bit is used in
determining the CPU to redirect to. This has caused confusion
among some customers.
