You can increase the limit by editing sys/amd64/include/vmm.h

#define VM_MAXCPU       16

From what I've been told, things scale badly above 24 CPUs. They plan to
solve this issue, but have not yet. If you system has enough cores to
support using more than 16 per VM, you can modify the file and recompile
the kernel and use as many CPUs as you want, but not much testing has
happened with bigger numbers.
