[CentOS-virt] High Guest CPU Utilization when using libgfapi

I am currently testing running Openstack instance on Cinder volume with
libgfapi. This instance is the Windows instance and i found that when
running random 4k write workload, the CPU utilization is very high,  90%
CPU utilization with about 86% in privileged time. I also tested the
workload with volume from NFS and the CPU utilization is only around 5%.
For gluster fuse, the CPU utilization is also not as high as 90%, around
30-40%. Is there any reason why is that so? Appreciate on any comments and
