Subject: Re: [Bug #14467] Linker errors on ia64 with NR_CPUS=4096

The NR_CPUS array in the percpu section needs to be removed.

A simple fix would be to allocate the rq_weight per cpu array
dynamically.

The large per cpu array was introduced as a fix to a race condition. Maybe
there is another way of dealing with this issue that does not require
large per cpu arrays?
