Yes interrupts are bound to CPU0 by default, but you can bind it to
different CPU via kcpuset_*() and interrupt_distribute().

I don't think it's possible to bind it to several CPUs unfortunately,
but if the device can trigger several interrupts you can bind each to
different CPU.

This is used e.g. in nvme(4) and wm(4).
