I'm sure that renaming for_each_cpu would not prevent that either.

But maintainers can check easily whether online or possible should be,
when they received a patch which includes for_each_cpu().

The submitter of the patch should have already thought of that
regardless of the name of the function. Everybody should be on
the same page anyway because for_each_cpu has always meant for
each possible CPU.
