Hi Allan,

I asked about increasing it and was told that it can be done by editing
a value in one of the .h files or something, but the reason it wasn't
higher was that it didn't scale nicely, and they wanted to reword how it

I would definitely be interested in this, as we run video transcoding
(uses a LOT of cpu) on 24 or 32 core machines, and we'd like to pass
more of the cores into the VM.

 You can bump it by modifying:

sys/amd64/include/vmm.h:#define VM_MAXCPU       16              /* maximum 
virtual cpus */

  ... and rebuilding world+kernel.

 Let us know how performance goes with larger values.

It will probably be a while before this value can be dynamic, but that's the goal.
