Given the callsite, this particular change looks ok to me. So FWIW:

Acked-by: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@arm.com>

However, as a more general note, the changes make the API feel odd. per
their current names, {get,put}_online_cpus() sound/feel like refcounting
ops, which should be able to nest.

Is there any chance these could get a better name, e.g.
{lock,unlock}_online_cpus(), so as to align with _cpuslocked?

Thanks,
Mark.
