Subject: [PATCH] Alpha increase PERCPU_ENOUGH_ROOM

Sending it again marking Jay Estabrook

-aneesh 

Module loading on Alpha was failing with error
"Could not allocate 8 bytes percpu data".

Looking at dmesg we have the below error
"No per-cpu room for modules."

Increase the PERCPU_ENOUGH_ROOM in a similar way as x86_64
