We're shipping Xen in SLE11 with NR_CPUS=255, and I'm convinced we'll be asked to up this further in the service packs.

Also, micro-optimization reads for me like I was aiming at a performance issue, but the goal really just is to get the use of stack space down (and in particular, make it as independent as possible from configuration settings).
