Yup. I was planning to send it as part of a small "hw/arm/virt: add
cpu-map" series I pretty much have ready, but didn't finish and send
yet because I got distracted working on the larger plan (among other
things). The motivation (larger plan) for cpu-map is full cpu-topology
configuration, but working on that has led to an smp parameter rework
RFC (hoping to send this week...) Wei or I can just send the virt-2.7
patch now though to get it done sooner than later.
