In order to reassure myself that nothing was untoward in GIC-land,
I went in and looked at an ITS-based VM running whatever is in
Linus' tree today. I see the effective affinity being correctly
setup, and being as expected a subset of the affinity. This is
without isolcpu though.

In any case, I'd be interested in understanding what this patch is
trying to solve, really.
