Subject[PATCH 4.14 09/74] x86/Kconfig: Limit NR_CPUS on 32-bit to a sane amount
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit 7bbcbd3d1cdcbacd0f9f8dc4c98d550972f1ca30 upstream.

The recent cpu_entry_area changes fail to compile on 32-bit when BIGSMP=y
and NR_CPUS=512, because the fixmap area becomes too big.

Limit the number of CPUs with BIGSMP to 64, which is already way to big for
32-bit, but it's at least a working limitation.

We performed a quick survey of 32-bit-only machines that might be affected
by this change negatively, but found none.
