Using alloc_percpu() / free_percpu() for a short section of code makes no sense.

You actually want to allocate memory local to this cpu, possibly in one chunk,
not spread all over the places.

kvmalloc(nr_cpu_ids * sizeof(struct netvsc_ethtool_pcpu_stats))  should be really better,
since it would most of the time be satisfied by a single kmalloc()
