Have not seen it but it would be a bit confusing since
we already have get_cpu* which must be paired with put_cpu*
because of the refcount taking (get_cpu_var and get_cpu).
get_cpu_ptr() would not have to be paired.

Better use a different name.

my_cpu_ptr came from my_cpu_offset:

#define my_cpu_ptr(ptr) SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR(ptr, my_cpu_offset)
#define __my_cpu_ptr(ptr) SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR(ptr, __my_cpu_offset)
