[PATCH 37/37] x86: use num_processors for possible cpus

From: Yinghai Lu
Date: Fri Jan 15 2010 - 22:09:14 EST

some systems that have disable cpus entries because same
BIOS will support 2 sockets and 4 sockets and more at
same time, BIOS just leave some disable entries, but
those system do not support cpu hotplug. we don't need
treat disabled_cpus as hotplug cpus.
so we can make nr_cpu_ids smaller and save more space
(pcpu data allocations), and could make some systems run
with logical flat instead of physical flat apic mode

-v2: change to black list instead
-v3: just remove that, and the one use possible_cpus= directly.

* Three ways to find out the number of additional hotplug CPUs:
- * - If the BIOS specified disabled CPUs in ACPI/mptables use that.
* - The user can overwrite it with possible_cpus=NUM
* - Otherwise don't reserve additional CPUs.
* We do this because additional CPUs waste a lot of memory.
