num_possible_cpus() returns how many CPUs may be present on system.
However we want the highest possible CPU number.
This may be differ in a sparsed possible CPUs map.

Highest possible number "Detected" at boot ? Can you explain a bit more !

My only concern is that for smaller systems - say if I build with NR_CPUS = 4, and
there are only 2 cpus present, then /proc/cpuinfo needs to print the fact. And a
quick test with ur patch says that is the case - so how does this help you. Do u
use nr_cpus cmdline toggle ?

[ARCLinux]# cat /proc/cpuinfo

IDENTITY    : ARCVER [0x51] ARCNUM [0x0] CHIPID [ 0x0]
processor [0]    : ARC HS38 R2.0 (ARCv2 ISA)
...
...
processor [2]    : Offline

processor [3]    : Offline

While trying to provide explanation I decided to "rethink" on this patch.
Its effect is not visible to you due to another "local" patch I use which justify this patch.
I need to reconsider both patches (maybe I will even remove both of them).

Thanks for the feedback.
