We try the below command line, the Windows 2016 guest successfully to
login and there are 80 vCPUs can be observed in the guest w/o the
patchset, why you mentioned the crash and ignore?

/usr/local/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 -machine pc-i440fx-rhel7.3.0 -m
8192 -smp 80,sockets=2,cores=40,threads=1 -device
ide-drive,bus=ide.0,drive=test -drive
-net nic,model=virtio -net user -monitor stdio -usb -usbdevice tablet
--enable-kvm --cpu host -vnc
