Should this be instead "rs = sbi->s_reservation_slots + get_cpu()"

And "put_cpu()" here?

Should we be assigning reservations to offline CPUs?  Doesn't it make sense
to assign 0 reservation to offline CPUs until they come back?  In the first
loop, if it is "for_each_possible_cpu()" it would drop reservations from
offline CPUs, and then the bottom one is "for_each_online_cpu()".
