[Check_mk (english)] ps check on linux reports cores incorrectly

On v1.5p11 EE , the process check (ps ) reports a process as using 300%
"total CPU" , the host has 6 cores but surely the total CPU usage for that
should be 50% ( ie each core is 16.6% of the total ).

Looking at the ps and ps.include code , there is provision for this but
only on windows hosts , for any other OS the default is set to 1 core and
there is no further calculation to change that.

Has anyone else noticed this??
