Subject: [PATCH 1/2] proc/stat: convert to single_open_size()

Use seq_file's single_open_size() to preallocate a buffer that is large
enough to hold the whole output, instead of open coding it.
Also calculate the requested size using the number of online cpus instead
of possible cpus, since the size of the output only depends on the number
of online cpus.
