It could be 4000. The present alloc_percpu() would support that.

And struct nfs_iostats is 264 bytes and nfs does an alloc_percpu() of
one of those per server and mounting thousands of servers per client
is, I believe, a real-world operation.

Plus for the entyenth time: saying that this code will probably work
acceptably for most people in 2.6.26 is not sufficient!
