nr_cpu_ids is dependent only on cpu_possible_map and
setup_per_cpu_areas() already depends on cpu_possible_map and will use
nr_cpu_ids.  Initialize nr_cpu_ids before setting up percpu areas.

This is repost of the following two patches with sparclinux mailing
list cc'd because I couldn't get any response from David Miller.
Nothing has changed code-wise.

 http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/867587

These two patches fix boot failure on sparc64 which happens if the
cpus don't have consecutive cpu numbers.

Thanks.
