kernel - Reduce the size of the callout wheel
* The callout wheel is per-cpu but ncallout is calculated based on memory.
A system with many cpus tended to allocate an excessive amount of memory
in aggregate for the callout wheels.
* Reduce the size of the per-cpu callout wheel by approximately a factor
of (ncpus). On a 16G machine with 8 cores, aggregate callout wheel
allocations is reduced from 128MB to 16MB.
