Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] qemu_driver: Try KVM_CAP_MAX_VCPUS only if defined

Bah. This feature was introduced not so long ago in the linux tree.

    KVM: x86: Raise the hard VCPU count limit

    The patch raises the hard limit of VCPU count to 254.

    This will allow developers to easily work on scalability
    and will allow users to test high VCPU setups easily without
    patching the kernel.

    To prevent possible issues with current setups, KVM_CAP_NR_VCPUS
    now returns the recommended VCPU limit (which is still 64) - this
    should be a safe value for everybody, while a new KVM_CAP_MAX_VCPUS
    returns the hard limit which is now 254.

$ git desc 8c3ba334f

      /* as a fallback get KVM_CAP_NR_VCPUS (the recommended maximum number of
       * vcpus). Note that on most machines this is set to 160. */

ACK the fallback paths are designed gracefully in the function.
