Just out of interest, all your figures show an almost maxed out CPU.
Why is it that my own runs use so little CPU? I'm running the above
command as we 'speak' and on average only 40% is utilized, with the
occasional spike at max 75%. And this is on the lowest CPU level
800MHz, which means that the 80% up_threshold of the ondemand cpufreq
governor never is breached (there are 1800MHz, 2000MHz and 2200MHz
levels above it).

Are you only 'giving' qemu something like 400MHz to play with or is
qemu so inefficient in itself?
