This series fixes those warnings by increasing the maximum number of CPUs. I went ahead and boot tested these patches on various boards [1] to insure there are no regressions introduced when increasing the number of CPUs.

I've applied your version. Increasing the limit more would mainly cause memory
to be wasted, so I don't think that's a good idea until we need to support
other hardware.
