I've waited for over half an hour now on the other desktop, and
qemu-kvm is sitll consuming 15% to 20% of the real CPU, just like it
was when I first switched away.  Hmmmm....  I'm using this virtual
machine to do some experimental Linux kernel work.  It's got nothing
whatsoever to do with scheduling, but now I wonder if I broke or
misconfigured something.

Let's assume the problem is due to me mucking about in the kernel
unless I uncover evidence to the contrary.  Thanks, Rich.
