That simply depends on the underlying hardware. On certain hardware we can change the affinity only in hard interrupt context, that means right when a interrupt of that device is delivered. On the other devices we can change it right away and the corresponding interrupt chips set IRQ_MOVE_PCNTXT to indicate that. There is nothing we can do about this. It's dictated by hardware.
