Subject[204/272] perf: Fix alloc_callchain_buffers()
2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>

commit 88d4f0db7fa8785859c1d637f9aac210932b6216 upstream.

Commit 927c7a9e92c4 ("perf: Fix race in callchains") introduced
a mismatch in the sizing of struct callchain_cpus_entries.

nr_cpu_ids must be used instead of num_possible_cpus(), or we
might get out of bound memory accesses on some machines.
