This solves two problems: The one reported by the bot. The other thing,
that is fixed by the patch, is that the first PER-CPU variable built-in
will return 0 for can_addr and so will the first variable in every
module. As far as I understand it, this should be unique and having the
same value for multiple different variables does not look too good :)
So adding the offset from CPU0 sounds good.
