I modified the patch based on suggestions given by Milton and Mike.
Milton is this patch okay?

Tested on 2.6.21-rc7.

=====
It is observed that in some PPC970 based machines, When the kernel is
booted with maxcpus=1, interrupts were distributed to non online cpus
also. So a condition is included to check whether the cpu online
map and cpu present map are equal or not. If they are equal
default_distrib_server is used as the interrupt server otherwise
default_server(ie boot cpu) is used as the interrupt server.

In addition to this, if an interrupt is assigned to a specific cpu (ie
smp affinity) and if that cpu is not online, the earlier code used to
return the default_distrib_server as interrupt server. This patch
introduces an additional parameter to the get_irq function ie
strict_check, based on this parameter, if the cpu is not online either
default_distrib_server or -1 is returned.
