[PATCH] Convert highest_possible_processor_id to nr_cpu_ids
We frequently need the maximum number of possible processors in order to allocate arrays for all processors. So far this was done using highest_possible_processor_id(). However, we do need the number of processors not the highest id. Moreover the number was so far dynamically calculated on each invokation. The number of possible processors does not change when the system is running. We can therefore calculate that number once.
