[PATCH] s390: possible_cpus parameter
Heiko Carstens [Fri, 17 Feb 2006 21:52:47 +0000 (13:52 -0800)]
Introduce possible_cpus command line option.  Hard sets the number of bits set
in cpu_possible_map.  Unlike the additional_cpus parameter this one guarantees
that num_possible_cpus() will stay constant even if the system gets rebooted
and a different number of cpus are present at startup.
