Here it is.

# define RELOC_HIDE(ptr, off) \
({ unsigned long __ptr; \
__ptr = (unsigned long) (ptr); \
(typeof(ptr)) (__ptr + (off)); })

#define __verify_pcpu_ptr(ptr) do { \
const void __percpu *__vpp_verify = (typeof(ptr))NULL; \
(void)__vpp_verify; \
} while (0)

/* Weird cast keeps both GCC and sparse happy. */
#define SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR(__p, __offset) ({ \
__verify_pcpu_ptr((__p)); \
RELOC_HIDE((typeof(*(__p)) __kernel __force *)(__p), (__offset)); \
})

#define per_cpu(var, cpu) \
(*SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR(&(var), per_cpu_offset(cpu)))

Thanks.
