How does KVM handle multiple cores. I have an x5650 with 6 real cores
that presents itself to my OS as 12 virtual cores (hyperthreading).
Does KVM see 6 or 12 cores.
And, can I tell KVM how many cores I want it to use?
Am I misunderstanding how KVM works?
What I am after is if my guest is 100% busy, I still
want some power left over for my host.
