Here's another round of removing static allocations of arrays
using NR_CPUS to size the length.  The change is to use PER_CPU
variables in place of the static tables.

Based on linux-2.6.git + x86.git

    x86_64-maxsmp (NR_CPUS=4096 MAXNODES=512)

Configs not built due to prior errors:

    ia64-sn2

Memory effects using x86_64-maxsmp

    Removes 1MB from permanant data adding 440 bytes to percpu area.
