Hi Souradeep,

(Thanks Jakub for sharing this thread with me)

If I understand your intention right, you can leverage the existing
cpumask_local_spread().

But I think I've got something better for you. The below series adds
a for_each_numa_cpu() iterator, which may help you doing most of the
job without messing with nodes internals.

https://lore.kernel.org/netdev/ZD3l6FBnUh9vTIGc@yury-ThinkPad/T/

By using it, the pseudocode implementing your algorithm may look
like this:

        unsigned int cpu, hop;
        unsigned int irq = 0;

again:
        cpu = get_cpu();
        node = cpu_to_node(cpu);
        cpumask_copy(cpus, cpu_online_mask);

        for_each_numa_cpu(cpu, hop, node, cpus) {
                /* All siblings are the same for IRQ spreading purpose */
                irq_set_affinity_and_hint(irq, topology_sibling_cpumask());

                /* One IRQ per sibling group */
                cpumask_andnot(cpus, cpus, topology_sibling_cpumask());

                if (++irq == num_irqs)
                        break;
        }

        if (irq < num_irqs)
                goto again;

(Completely not tested, just an idea.)

Thanks,
Yury
