SubjectRe: [PATCH] percpu data: only iterate over possible CPUs

This sched.c bit breaks Xen, and probably also other architectures
that have CPU hotplug. I suspect the reason is that during early
bootup only the boot CPU is online, so nothing initialises the
runqueues for CPUs that are brought up afterwards.

I suspect we can get rid of this problem quite easily by moving
runqueue initialisation to init_idle()...
