Migrating interrupts when turning off a CPU already works.

Patch 7/7 fixes this
What do you mean by all interrupts? Interrupts routed to guest will
always follow the vCPU. So are you sure they are going to be
migrated when that vCPU is paused/off?
Just to make sure we're on the same page - this is about hotplugging
physical CPUs. Hotplugging vCPUs using virtual PSCI CPU_OFF interface is
already implemented and unrelated to this series.
Yes, we are on the same page :). I was just wondering what happen to
interrupt routed to that pCPU.
Assuming that system has 2 pCPUs by 'all interrupts' I mean interrupts
that were targeted to the pCPU#0 and pCPU#1 prior to doing any hotplug.
For example, if a guest is pinned to pCPU#1 an interrupt of a device it
owns will be targeted to pCPU#1.
When pCPU#1 is turned off that interrupt will be migrated to pCPU#0.
pCPU#0 finalizes the suspend and receives wake-up interrupts. However,
when CPU#1 is turned back on that interrupt will remain targeted to the
CPU#0, which I assumed is wrong.
The scenario described here is also how I tested this.
Can you give the path in Xen doing that?
Sure, here is a backtrace (dumped on the CPU being turned off):

So this cover interrupt routed to a virtual CPU. However, this does not
handle interrupts used by Xen. How do you handle them?
For instance SMMUs IRQ might be routed to other interrupt than CPU #0.
If the former, it would be nice to get the code you used. If the
latter, then having a hack patch to test that code would be nice.
Ideally, you want to plug that in the SYSCTL interface for
Ok, I have never used that but I'll try to figure it out. I may come up
with additional questions.
You might want to have a look at the x86 version XEN_SYSCTL_cpu_hotplug
