What I mean is that ACPI is required nowadays for any sane SMP. Yes,
Speaking of 200% CPU for "MPS" being faster than ACPI version - maybe
it's your cpufreq code, and switching from 'ondemand' to 'performance'
governer will make ACPI version faster?
I see no difference in speed between ACPI and non-ACPI version of a
_single_-CPU winXP, and my winXP does not boot at all (BSOD) with -smp 2
and -no-acpi. I never tried to find out why, because felt it's not the
right way anyway (and it shows similar BSOD when wrongly switching
between ACPI and non-ACPI in winXP on many older (PIII etc) - again,
non-smp - boxes).
Windows XP uses 200% CPU when given 2 VCPUs

Status in QEMU: New
When using libvirt to give a domain 2 CPUs (<domain
type='kvm'><vcpu>2</vcpu></domain>), the Windows XP kvm process will use 200%
CPU when Windows is idle. Switching the number of CPUs back to 1, the kvm
process gives normal idle percentages.
Using libvirt 0.8.3-1ubuntu9, tried with the following qemu-kvm packages:
The smp flag being set by libvirt is:
