I think some hardware implements hardware interrupt
redirection on each node. For such system, I think it
is good idea to use NUMA node as a VECTOR_DOMAIN to
make it possible to use hardware interrupt redirection.
Currently I don't have other reasons to use the set of
processors as a vector domain instead of per-CPU approach.

Does anyone have other reasons to use other approach than
per-CPU approach?
