[RFC PATCH] genirq: Change the non-balanced irq to balance irq when the cpu of the irq bounded off line

From: Ma Jun <majun258@xxxxxxxxxx>

When the CPU of a non-balanced irq bounded is off line, the irq will be migrated to other CPUs,
usually the first cpu on-line.

We can suppose the situation if a system has more than one non-balanced irq.
At extreme case, these irqs will be migrated to the same CPU and will cause the
CPU run with high irq pressure, even make the system die.

So, I think maybe we need to change the non-balanced irq to a irq can be
balanced to avoid the problem descried above.

Maybe this is not a good solution for this problem, please offer me some
suggestion if you have a better one.
