[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] limit guest cpus for kvm enabled builds

From: Bruce Rogers
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] limit guest cpus for kvm enabled builds
Date: Thu, 09 Apr 2009 09:47:02 -0600

The x86 kvm kernel module limits guest cpu count to 16, but the userspace pc 
definition says 255 still.  When invoking qemu-kvm with -smp > 16, it prints 
some error messages, then segfaults.   One of the mistakes is that the error 
code from kvm_create_vcpu is ignored in ap_main_loop.
This patch will enforce the limit at initialization time and avoid these 
problems from the get go.
