Ah, sure enough, I can't be lazy. :-) I stole that from the commit
  3b11ce7f542e ("x86: use possible_cpus=NUM to extend the possible cpus

How about:

possible_cpus= [s390,x86_64] Set the number of possible CPUs which
are determined by the ACPI tables MADT or mptables by
default. possible_cpus=n : n >= 1 enforces the possible
number to be 'n'.
While nr_cpus is also be set: nr_cpus=m, choice the
minimum one for the number of possible CPUs.
