Is it possible that the node id set by device_add() become invalid
if the node is offlined, then dev_to_node() may return a invalid
node id.

From the comment in select_fallback_rq(), it seems that a node can
be offlined, not sure if node offline process has taken cared of that?

/*
* If the node that the CPU is on has been offlined, cpu_to_node()
* will return -1. There is no CPU on the node, and we should
* select the CPU on the other node.
*/


With the above assumption that a device is always on a valid node,
the node id returned from dev_to_node() can be safely passed to
cpumask_of_node() without any checking?
