Hmm, you're right, that makes things much simpler. I guess I'm mostly
worried about the 1% where this significantly differs, but it looks
like we're smarter than simply doing CONFIG_NR_CPUS for the possible
map, and we can easily stomach a bit of discrepancy in this path.

I'll change that to possible and delete/update the third paragraph.

Thanks
