Subject: Re: [PATCH] torture-test modules: Remove unnecessary "ret" variables

Paul,
The #ifdef cannot be replaced, as this would break the build for
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU=n builds. There are assignments and references to two
global variables, a struct, and a function that are declared/defined in
a large "#ifdef CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU" block which ends directly above
torture_onoff_init(). IS_ENABLED() would cause these references to be
present at compile time, but not their declarations or definitions,
which would certainly cause a compilation error.
