Though there is something wrong here:

and after offlining:

> affinity: 29

But that should be:

affinity: 24-29
effectiv: 29

because the irq core code preserves 'affinity'. It merily updates
'effective', which is where your interrupts are routed to.

Is the driver issuing any set_affinity() calls? If so, that's wrong.

Which driver are we talking about?
