I believe we discussed this issue some time ago and I even sent some 
patches to workaround this, but they never found the way upstream.

When the host is booting, it will start all KVM guests at the same time.

With ~10 guests or more, it may load the machine so much that some 
guests may fail to start due to some bug either in kernel or KVM.

On a screenshot, it looks like below:


The issue does not happen if we pause for 15 seconds or more between 
starting guests.

Is there a chance for a fix here?
