[PATCH 0/1] x86: Convert cpuinfo_x86 array to a per_cpu array v3

From: travis
Date: Mon Sep 24 2007 - 17:09:15 EST

v3: fix compile errors in arch-i386-allmodconfig build

v2: rebasing on 2.6.23-rc6-mm1

Analyzing various data structures when NR_CPU count is raised
to 4096 shows the following arrays over 128k. If the maximum
number of cpus are not installed (about 99.99% of the time),
then a large percentage of this memory is wasted.
151289856 CALNDATA irq_desc
135530496 RMDATATA irq_cfg

cpu_sibling_map and cpu_core_map have been taken care of in
a prior patch. This patch deals with the cpu_data array of
cpuinfo_x86 structs. The model that was used in sparc64
architecture was adopted for x86.
