Subject: [PATCH 4.4 089/230] xtensa: SMP: limit number of possible CPUs by NR_CPUS

4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit 25384ce5f9530def39421597b1457d9462df6455 ]

This fixes the following warning at boot when the kernel is booted on a
board with more CPU cores than was configured in NR_CPUS:

  smp_init_cpus: Core Count = 8
  smp_init_cpus: Core Id = 0
  ------------[ cut here ]------------
  WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 0 at include/linux/cpumask.h:121 smp_init_cpus+0x54/0x74
  Modules linked in:
  CPU: 0 PID: 0 Comm: swapper Not tainted 5.0.0-rc3-00015-g1459333f88a0 #124
