While you do for_each_present_cpu() in netvsc_get_ethtool_stats(),
netvsc_get_pcpu_stats() does for_each_possible_cpu(). This looks

The allocation you're doing here is short-lived so I would suggest you
use possible_cpus everywhere. Even knowing there's no CPU hotplug on
Hyper-V at this moment, it can appear later and we'll get a hard-to-find
issue. Moreover, we may consider using netvsc driver on e.g. KVM with
Hyper-V enlightenments and KVM has CPU hotplug already.
