Maybe we can dynamicly cacluate the value in upspace according to the amount of vcups, and transfer it to kernel at the stage of vm creation. Another thing we need to consider is its value shouldfollow tlb's page size, otherwise, it may result in other issues. Thanks for your effort!
Hi Xiantao, Thanks for taking a look at this. Yes I do plan to add some logic for setting this from QEMU. Basically what I talked to Hollis about was to create some KVM_CONTEXT_CREATE or similar ioctl, where one requests a maximum size of the KVM instance, like maximum possible number of vcpus, memory etc. Cheers, Jes

I put in an artificial limit of 64 vcpus for now anyway as scaling wise it doesn't work well going higher anyway..... we'll get there :-) Cheers, Jes
