Hi Peter,
Thank you, that answered my question.
Another thing: Are these threads (the ones that run the VCPUs) ever
destroyed and recreated? In the timespan between the moment they are
created (when the guest starts) and when the guest is shut down, is
there any chance of the threads ending/being killed and others created
to take their place? Or do you end up with the same threads?
I am trying to add some information to the VCPU thread at the moment
it is created by bhyve, and want that information to be available for
the entirety of the guest's lifespan.
