It's kinda muddy unfortunately. I think it rejects if the target cpu is
offline but accept and ignores if the cpu is excluded by cpuset.

I think the first thing to do is defining the desired behavior, hopefully in
a consistent manner, rather than letting it be defined by implementation.
e.g. If the desired behavior is the per-cpu helper failing, then it should
probably exit when the target cpu isn't available for whatever reason. If
the desired behavior is best effort when cpu goes away (ie. ignore
affinity), the creation likely shouldn't fail when the target cpu is
unavailable but can become available in the future.
