Not until you just mentioned it. I've never tried it, but looking at the code 
I'd expect that the limit would have been 32 or 64, not 16. I can't think why 
xennet would be caring about the number of processors either, although that 
could just be a symptom of a problem in xenpci.

I'll try and find some time to test it myself.
