The above failure is supposed to be handled as error, either queue is
frozen or hctx is unmapped.

My two patches not only avoids the kernel panic, but also allow
request to be allocated successfully, then connect io queue request can
be submitted to driver even though all CPUs in hctx->cpumask is offline,
then nvmef can be setup well.

That is the difference with yours to fail the request allocation, then
connect io queues can't be done, and the whole host can't be setup
successfully, then become a brick. The point is that cpu offline shouldn't
fail to setup nvme fc/rdma/tcp/loop.

Again, it isn't related with avoiding the if, and it isn't in hotpath
at all.
