    Overcommitting cpus system-wide is pretty common. A use-case is
    consolidating a pile of underused non-performance-critical servers into
    one physical machine with a lot of VMs. It doesn't take much load to
    cause a dhcp request to the dhcp server to steal a cpu away from the
    mysql server while it holds a lock...

    I'll mail out my patches so we can have a more concrete discussion shortly.
