xfs/502 currently creates a default of 30k unlinked files per CPU.
While this completes in a reasonable amount of time on systems with
lesser numbers of CPUs, this scales poorly on high CPU count systems
that are otherwise testing smaller default filesystems. For example,
on an 80xcpu box and a 15GB (4 AG) XFS filesystem, xfs/502 requires
3 hours to complete. The same test on a 4xcpu vm (or the 80xcpu
hardware with an 80AG filesystem instead of the default of 4AGs)
completes in a little over 5 minutes. This is a rather severe
thrashing breakdown that doesn't add much value to the test

Address this problem by scaling the file count to the AG count of
the filesystem rather than the CPU count of the test system. Since
the AG count is likely to be less than the CPU count, bump the
default scaling factor a bit from 30k per CPU to 50k per AG. From
there, larger counts can still be exercised via the global load
factor configuration.
