The default affinity of the interrupts for all devices is always CPU0,
this may cause the latency on CPU0 is very high when some interrupt
occurs very frequently.

I want to migrate an interrupt to another cpu when the driver loading.

My code like this:

/* I want to bind irq_vector to cpu 3 */
cpumask_var_t mask;
cpumask_set_cpu(3, mask);
irq_set_affinity(irq_vector, mask);

build wanring:
WARNING: "__irq_set_affinity" [/root/drivers/dr.ko] undefined!

insmod error:
dr: Unknown symbol __irq_set_affinity (err 0)
