  The real question is if this is actualy a change of behaviour.
I think it is, but without doing this this gets quite hard to
effectively control separately the usage for the hypervisor threads
versus those of the guests.
  This is also the point of that large patch set ... so ACK based
on the fact that people saw that coming and won't disagree with that
possible small change in the control.
