Subject[PATCH 00/10] NR_CPUS: third reduction of NR_CPUS memory usage

Here's the third round of removing static allocations of arrays using
NR_CPUS to size the length. The change is to use PER_CPU variables in
place of the static tables, or allocate the array based on nr_cpu_ids.

In addition, there's a cleanup of x86 non-smp code, the movement of
setting nr_cpu_ids to setup_per_cpu_areas() so it's available as soon
as possible, and a new function cpumask_scnprintf_len() to return the
number of characters needed to display "len" cpumask bits.

I moved the x86_64 cleanup and move-set-nr_cpu_ids from the zero-based
percpu variables patchset to this one, as I was encountering a panic
from system_call_after_swapgs() after an unknown device interrupt during
module loading. That problem will be dealt with in another patch.


Here's the various effects of the patches on memory usages using the
akpm2 config file with NR_CPUS=4096 and MAXNODES=512:
