As you rightly commented on v1 and it is mainly for "mct_tick%d" with number of local timers and
local timer is per cpu. With increase in cpu number, name[10] restrict the scalability.
So either we can change to 11, or use some reference (as local timer number in this patch). 
Let me know your thought on this.
