  I think we need to expand this a bit:
    - first state that 0 means no value for both tunable
    - then express that the implementation is based on CFS for QEmu/KVM
      and what the use case really are. It seems to me that it's not
      really for fine grained ressource control but rather to keep the
      limits of CPU usage consistent.
    - also an small explanation of how well those tunable may or may not
      work in case of migration seems important

ACK

and don't forget the commit message :-)

 thanks

Daniel
