What will happen with the code using topology_physical_package_id ?

drivers/acpi/processor_thermal.c: int id =
topology_physical_package_id(cpu);

drivers/acpi/processor_thermal.c: if
(topology_physical_package_id(i) == id)

drivers/acpi/processor_thermal.c: if
(topology_physical_package_id(i) ==

drivers/acpi/processor_thermal.c:
topology_physical_package_id(cpu))

drivers/block/mtip32xx/mtip32xx.c:
topology_physical_package_id(cpumask_first(node_mask)),

drivers/cpufreq/arm_big_little.c: return
topology_physical_package_id(cpu);

drivers/crypto/qat/qat_common/adf_common_drv.h: return
topology_physical_package_id(smp_processor_id());

drivers/crypto/virtio/virtio_crypto_common.h: node =
topology_physical_package_id(cpu);

kernel/events/core.c: event_pkg =
topology_physical_package_id(event_cpu);

kernel/events/core.c: local_pkg =
topology_physical_package_id(local_cpu);
