Description Wen Yang 2017-11-07 07:35:27 UTC
step1:irq 769's smp_affinity is cpu0:
# cat /proc/irq/769/smp_affinity

step2: I set irq affinity,use this command:
# echo 2 > /proc/irq/769/smp_affinity      

step3: view the result, no change:
# cat /proc/irq/769/smp_affinity

I use this stap script to trace:
probe kernel.function("__irq_set_affinity").return
                printf(">>> return %d \n", $return);
                printf(">>> call stack:   \n");

redo step1-3, the result is:
>>> return -28 
>>> call stack:   
Returning from:  0xffffffff8111e5b0 : __irq_set_affinity+0x0/0x70 [kernel]
Returning to  :  0xffffffff81122709 : write_irq_affinity.isra.3+0x119/0x140 [kernel]

 0xffffffff81648849 : system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b [kernel]

it's because the write_irq_affinity function, not thow err number:
static ssize_t write_irq_affinity(int type, struct file *file,
		const char __user *buffer, size_t count, loff_t *pos)
	unsigned int irq = (int)(long)PDE_DATA(file_inode(file));
	cpumask_var_t new_value;
	int err;

	if (!irq_can_set_affinity(irq) || no_irq_affinity)
		return -EIO;

	if (!cpumask_intersects(new_value, cpu_online_mask)) {
		/* Special case for empty set - allow the architecture
		   code to set default SMP affinity. */
		err = irq_select_affinity_usr(irq, new_value) ? -EINVAL : count;
	} else {
		irq_set_affinity(irq, new_value);
==============> it should throw error number
		err = count;

	return err;
