sched/isolcpus: Fix "isolcpus=" boot parameter handling when !CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK

cpulist_parse() uses nr_cpumask_bits as a limit to parse the
passed buffer from kernel commandline. What nr_cpumask_bits
represents varies depending upon the CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK option:

 - If CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=n, then nr_cpumask_bits is the same as
   NR_CPUS, which might not represent the # of CPUs that really exist
   (default 64). So, there's a chance of a gap between nr_cpu_ids
   and NR_CPUS, which ultimately lead towards invalid cpulist_parse()
   operation. For example, if isolcpus=9 is passed on an 8 cpu
   system (CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=n) it doesn't show the error
   that it's supposed to.

This patch fixes this bug by finding the last CPU of the passed
isolcpus= list and checking it against nr_cpu_ids.

It also fixes the error message where the nr_cpu_ids should be
nr_cpu_ids-1, since CPU numbering starts from 0.
