At the end, it is reduced to our usage, we are running QEMU inside
docker to test kernel changes with limitation on number of CPUs to use.
The systems are optimized to boot kernel as soon as possible in order
to run tests and on my machine (64 CPUs) reduce is visible: from ~2.6
sec to ~2.3 sec from execution to kernel boot.
