If the hardware can handle it properly.

But see:

  cffb717ceb8e ("powerpc/xive: Ensure active irqd when setting affinity")

which introduced that condition. It mutters something about migration of
shutdown interrupts:

       [  123.053037264,3] XIVE[ IC 00  ] ISN 2 lead to invalid IVE !
       [   77.885859] xive: Error -6 reconfiguring irq 17
       [   77.885862] IRQ17: set affinity failed(-6).

Not that I can decode that :)

Non-managed interrupts have the sequence:


which is historical and an earlier attempt to flip it caused havoc in
some places.

With managed we needed to make sure that the affinity is set correctly
right at start. So it needs to be done the other way round and it turned
out that for MSI this works.

I have no idea, whether that might make the above issue reappear or
not. If so, then we need some extra state to make it work.

The root cause which triggered the problem got fixed, so there should be
no issue _if_ this was specifically related to that CPU unplug case.
