Since commit c66d4bd110a1f8 ("genirq/affinity: Add new callback for
(re)calculating interrupt sets"), irq_create_affinity_masks() returns
NULL in case of single vector. This change has caused regression on some
drivers, such as lpfc.

The problem is that single vector may be triggered in some generic cases:
1) kdump kernel 2) irq vectors resource is close to exhaustion.

If we don't create affinity mask for single vector, almost every caller
has to handle the special case.

So still create affinity mask for single vector, since irq_create_affinity_masks()
is capable of handling that.

Without this patch, kdump kernel may not work, so could you take a look
at this patch?

Thanks,

Hi Ming,

Looks good to me.
