    SubjectRE: [PATCH] ia64: change defconfig to NR_CPUS==1024

    I suppose that depends on your expectations from defconfig. In my
    mind its the one that builds into a kernel that will boot and run
    on just about any box. People who want to get a bit of extra performance
    will do the re-compilation to strip out the bits that they don't want
    and tune down limits that are set higher than they need. I only
    ever boot a defconfig kernel to check that it still works, my systems
    all run tiger_defconfig/zx1_defconfig based most of the time. But
    perhaps I'm the weird one?

    There are quite a few >16 socket boxes out there, which will give
    you >64 cpus with Montecito ... so I don't think that the >64 cpu
    system is going to remain in the noise for long.
