umm..

I've reviewed my patch again.
but sched_init() already has multiple #ifdef SMP. Thus I don't think
cosmetic changing improve readability largely.



------------------------------------
Subject: [PATCH] sched: cpuacct: Use bigger percpu counter batch values for stats counters
percpu counters used to accumulate statistics in cpuacct controller use
the default batch value [max(2*nr_cpus, 32)] which can be too small for
archs that define VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING. In such archs, a tick could result in
cputime updates in the range of thousands. As a result, cpuacct_update_stats()
would end up acquiring the percpu counter spinlock on every tick which
is not good for performance.

Let those architectures to have a bigger batch threshold so that percpu counter
spinlock isn't taken on every tick. This change doesn't affect the archs which
don't define VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING and they continue to have the default
percpu counter batch value.

v7:
- fix typo and changelog

v6:
- fix build error when UP

v5:
- move cpuacct_batch initialization into sched_init()

v4:
- rewrite patch description (thanks Bharata!)
- append read_mostly to cpuacct_batch
- cpuacct_batch is initialized by sched_init_debug()

v3:
- revert using percpu_counter_sum()

v2:
- use percpu_counter_sum() instead percpu_counter_read()
