What about this? It doesn't use direct cast to scalar but should
create a pointer type to kernel space datas:


#define kernel_space_t(var) \
(typeof(var) __kernel __force)

#define SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR(__p, __offset) ({ \
__verify_pcpu_ptr((__p)); \
RELOC_HIDE((typeof(*(kernel_space_t(var)) __kernel __force *)(__p), (__offset)); \
})
#define per_cpu(var, cpu) \
(*SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR(&(var), per_cpu_offset(cpu)))
