irqchip: mips-gic: Use num_possible_cpus() to reserve IPIs
Reserving a number of IPIs based upon the number of VPs reported by the GIC makes little sense for a few reasons: - The kernel may have been configured with NR_CPUS less than the number of VPs in the cluster, in which case using gic_vpes causes us to reserve more interrupts for IPIs than we will possibly use. - If a kernel is configured without support for multi-threading & runs on a system with multi-threading & multiple VPs per core then we'll similarly reserve more interrupts for IPIs than we will possibly use. - In systems with multiple clusters the GIC can only provide us with the number of VPs in its cluster, not across all clusters. In this case we'll reserve fewer interrupts for IPIs than we need. Fix these issues by using num_possible_cpus() instead, which in all cases is actually indicative of how many IPIs we may need.
