From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@kernel.org>

The rcutorture scripting uses the mpstat command to determine how much
the system is being used, and adjusts make's -j argument accordingly.
However, mpstat isn't installed by default, so it would be good if the
scripting does something useful when mpstat isn't present.

This commit therefore makes the scripts assumes that if mpstat is not
present, they are free to use all the CPUs.
