Subject: [PATCH] NET : convert ip_rt_acct to per_cpu variables

Hi David

I am chasing NR_CPUS syndrom for your NR_CPUS=4096 machines :)

(Feel free to give me an account on one of them just for fun)

I made this patch but have no idea if it actually works 
(only compile tested) because I dont know how to use this
CONFIG_NET_CLS_ROUTE stuff

Thank you

[PATCH] NET : NET_CLS_ROUTE : convert ip_rt_acct to per_cpu variables

ip_rt_acct needs 4096 bytes per cpu to perform some accounting.
It is actually allocated as a single huge array [4096*NR_CPUS]
(rounded up to a power of two)

Converting it to a per cpu variable is wanted to :
 - Save space on machines were num_possible_cpus() < NR_CPUS
 - Better NUMA placement (each cpu gets memory on its node)
