>>>Subject: [PATCH v2 1/1] scsi: storvsc: Fix calculation of sub-channel count
>>>
>>>When the number of sub-channels offered by Hyper-V is >= the number of
>>>CPUs in the VM, calculate the correct number of sub-channels.
>>>The current code produces one too many.
>>>
>>>This scenario arises only when the number of CPUs is artificially restricted
>>>(for example, with maxcpus=<n> on the kernel boot line), because Hyper-V
>>>normally offers a sub-channel count < number of CPUs.
>>>While the current code doesn't break, the extra sub-channel is unbalanced
>>>across the CPUs (for example, a total of 5 channels on a VM with 4 CPUs).
