Description of problem:
Boot guest with -cpu 4,maxcpus=8, then hot add vcpu. from monitor, we can see that we can hot add more than 8 vcpus. in guest, guest can recognize maxcpus.from guest of view,this is ok,however,from monitor view,it's not very good.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot guest -cpu 4,maxcpus=8
2.Hot add vcpu
3.(qemu) info cpus 
* CPU #0: pc=0xffffffff810377cb (halted) thread_id=10742 
  CPU #1: pc=0xffffffff810377cb (halted) thread_id=10743 
  CPU #2: pc=0xffffffff810377cb (halted) thread_id=10744 
  CPU #3: pc=0xffffffff810377cb (halted) thread_id=10745 
  CPU #4: pc=0xffffffff810377cb (halted) thread_id=10844 
  CPU #5: pc=0xffffffff810377cb (halted) thread_id=10845 
  CPU #6: pc=0xffffffff810377cb (halted) thread_id=11219 
  CPU #7: pc=0xffffffff810377cb (halted) thread_id=11221 
  CPU #8: pc=0x00000000fffffff0 thread_id=11223 
  CPU #9: pc=0x00000000fffffff0 thread_id=11225 
  CPU #10: pc=0x00000000fffffff0 thread_id=11426 
  CPU #11: pc=0x00000000fffffff0 thread_id=11427
Actual results:
After step3,as you can see,more than 8 vcpu

Expected results:
Should give a friendly message that tell user can not hot add vcpu more than maxcpus number.

Additional info:
In guest,guest can recognize maxcpus number at most, from guest point,it's ok.
Comment 1 Igor Mammedov 2012-04-02 09:10:16 EDT
to fix it we need sanity check for maxcpus and bug 807512 are about the same. So I'll dup it to bug 807512
