Since this seems to be a common pattern, how about:

   zalloc_cpumask_var_or_all_online_cpus(&cpus, GFTP_ATOMIC);
   ...
   free_cpumask_var(cpus);

The long-named function at the top of the block either returns a newly
allocated zeroed cpumask, or a static cpumask with all online cpus set. 
The code in the middle is only allowed to set bits in the cpumask
(should be the common usage).  free_cpumask_var() needs to check whether
the freed object is the static variable.
