percpu: clean up size usage
Andrew was concerned about the unit of variables named or have suffix size. Every usage in percpu allocator is in bytes but make it super clear by adding comments. While at it, make pcpu_depopulate_chunk() take int @off and @size like everyone else. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org>
