Subject[PATCH v2 1/1] scsi: storvsc: Fix calculation of sub-channel count
Date
When the number of sub-channels offered by Hyper-V is >= the number
of CPUs in the VM, calculate the correct number of sub-channels.
The current code produces one too many.

This scenario arises only when the number of CPUs is artificially
restricted (for example, with maxcpus=<n> on the kernel boot line),
because Hyper-V normally offers a sub-channel count < number of CPUs.
While the current code doesn't break, the extra sub-channel is
unbalanced across the CPUs (for example, a total of 5 channels on
a VM with 4 CPUs).

Changes in v2:
* Put num_online_cpus() inline and eliminate num_cpus local
variable [Vitaly Kuznetsov]
