Virtualization is a really complex topic. I don't really "see" the
overhead you refer to, or the goal you have in mind. I'm a VMWare user.
My main purpose in using VMWare is to just get work done in the guest
OS'es I have, rather than focus on how they use or share system
resources. Since I'm new to VMware I just follow their published
guidelines. Thankfully, VMWare does a huge amount of your thinking for
you and tries to provide all the resources you might want. It provides a
great deal of networking support. There is very extensive published
documentation on VMWare, and the VMWare forums are extremely active.
Perhaps these resources can offer you more insight?
