[pve-devel] [PATCH manager v2 2/6] ui CPUOptions: cpulimits is not dependend of VM cores

It makes no real sense to set the maximal allowed value to the total
count of VM cores as this setting controls how much Host CPU time the
whole KVM/QEMU instance can get. This instance does not only contains
the VMs CPU threads but also threads for networking, block IO,
migration, ...
So it can make sense to set more host CPU time than just the guest
CPU processes could get.
