On the <vcpu> elemnet we have a placement=auto attribute, which tells
libvirt to pick host pCPU placement for vCPUs automatically. In the
QEMU driver, this asks 'numad' for best placement.   This is only
done during initial guest startup - there's no active monitoring or
adjustment thereafter.

Anything more advanced than this, is out of scope for libvirt and
best served by an external app above.

Daniel
