    Use num_possible_cpus() instead of NR_CPUS for timer distribution
    To avoid lock contention, we distribute the sched_timer calls across the
    cpus so they do not trigger at the same instant.  However, I used NR_CPUS,
    which can cause needless grouping on small smp systems depending on your
    kernel config.  This patch converts to using num_possible_cpus() so we
    spread it as evenly as possible on every machine.
    Briefly tested w/ NR_CPUS=255 and verified reduced contention.
