Here is the relevant portion of irq.c, let me know if this is not correct.

        /* Attempt to bind the interrupt target to the correct CPU. */
        cpu_set(v->processor, cpumask);
        /* if ( desc->handler->set_affinity != NULL )
            desc->handler->set_affinity(vector, cpumask); */
