genirq: Add a helper to spread an affinity mask for MSI/MSI-X vectors

This is lifted from the blk-mq code and adopted to use the affinity mask
concept just introduced in the irq handling code.  It tries to keep the
algorithm the same as the one current used by blk-mq, but improvements
like assining vectors on a per-node basis instead of just per sibling
are possible with this simple move and refactoring.

* Take a map of online CPUs and the number of available interrupt vectors
* and generate an output cpumask suitable for spreading MSI/MSI-X vectors
* so that they are distributed as good as possible around the CPUs. If
* more vectors than CPUs are available we'll map one to each CPU,
* otherwise we map one to the first sibling of each socket.
* If there are more vectors than CPUs we will still only have one bit
* set per CPU, but interrupt code will keep on assigning the vectors from
* the start of the bitmap until we run out of vectors.
