The use cases fro CPU pinning are exactly like discussed above: (1)
lowering guest scheduling latencies and (2) improving networking latencies
by pinning the SR-IOV IRQ's to specific cores. There is also a third use
case, (3) avoiding long latencies with spinlocks.

How would this work? As a solution, this would be much better since then
OpenStack would have much less low-level work to do.
