2.6.39-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Milton Miller <miltonm@bga.com>

commit bd9e5eefecb3d69018bb95796298019d309cbec8 upstream.

Starting with 1426d5a3bd07589534286375998c0c8c6fdc5260 (powerpc:
Dynamically allocate pacas) the space for pacas beyond cpu_possible
is freed, but we failed to update the loop in crash.c.

Since c1854e00727f50f7ac99e98d26ece04c087ef785 (powerpc: Set nr_cpu_ids
early and use it to free PACAs) the number of pacas allocated is
always nr_cpu_ids.
