Subject: [PATCH] irqchip/gic-v3-its: Flush GICR caching for a cross node collection move of an irq

When an interrupt is moved, it is possible that an implementation that
supports caching might still have cached data for a previous
(no longer valid) mapping of the interrupt. In particular, in a distributed
GIC implementation like multi-socket SoC platfroms. Hence it is necessary
to flush cached entries after cross node collection migration.
