Subject: [PATCH 2/2] sched: move rq_weight data array out of .percpu

Commit 34d76c41 introduced percpu array update_shares_data, size of which 
being proportional to NR_CPUS. Unfortunately this blows up ia64 for large 
NR_CPUS configuration, as ia64 allows only 64k for .percpu section.

Fix this by allocating this array dynamically and keep only pointer to it
percpu.

The per-cpu handling doesn't impose significant performance penalty on
potentially contented path in tg_shares_up().
