This is a great idea, especially since it will make it even more
painfully obvious that essentially any function local cpumask_t
variable is a bug.

Really, it seems sensible to do something like:

1) Make cpumask_t a pointer.

2) Add cpumask_data_t which is what cpumask_t is now. This gets
used when for the actual storage, and will only get applied to
datastructures that are dynamically allocated. For example, for
the cpu_vm_mask in mm_struct.

3) Type make and fix build failures until they are all gone.
