As this callback is registered for each hctx, when a cpu is online, it is called
for each hctx.

Just taking a 4-queue nvme as example (regardless about other block like loop).
Suppose cpu=2 (out of 0, 1, 2 and 3) is offline. When we online cpu=2,

blk_mq_hctx_notify_online() called: cpu=2 and blk_mq_hw_ctx->queue_num=3
blk_mq_hctx_notify_online() called: cpu=2 and blk_mq_hw_ctx->queue_num=2
blk_mq_hctx_notify_online() called: cpu=2 and blk_mq_hw_ctx->queue_num=1
blk_mq_hctx_notify_online() called: cpu=2 and blk_mq_hw_ctx->queue_num=0

There is no need to set cpu 2 for blk_mq_hw_ctx->queue_num=[3, 1, 0]. I am
afraid this patch would erroneously set cpumask for blk_mq_hw_ctx->queue_num=[3,
1, 0].

I used to submit the below patch explaining above for removing a cpu and it is
unfortunately not merged yet.

Another thing is during initialization, the hctx->cpumask should already been
set and even the cpu is offline. Would you please explain the case hctx->cpumask
is not set correctly, e.g., how to reproduce with a kvm guest running
scsi/virtio/nvme/loop?
