    Subject[PATCH v3 8/9] KVM-GST: adjust scheduler cpu power
    Date
    This is a first proposal for using steal time information
    to influence the scheduler. There are a lot of optimizations
    and fine grained adjustments to be done, but it is working reasonably
    so far for me (mostly)

    With this patch (and some host pinnings to demonstrate the situation),
    two vcpus with very different steal time (Say 80 % vs 1 %) will not get
    an even distribution of processes. This is a situation that can naturally
    arise, specially in overcommited scenarios. Previosly, the guest scheduler
    would wrongly think that all cpus have the same ability to run processes,
    lowering the overall throughput.
