In the beginning (without any patches) VMs crashed fairly quickly. With
your patch it took longer, but I was able to consistently crash VMs. The
thread notes server info (processor, OS) and VM versions as well as load
used for the tests -- a cpu bound process (openssl), disk bound (dd) and
network (netperf).

That's up to the perf maintainers -- Ingo, Peter, Arnaldo. Personally, I
don't like it since kernel side is changing the user request.
