I meant in terms of upstream code.  I will believe you when you say that
those instances do it differently.

My point was that the processor index is only as accurate as hvmloader
makes it, and upstream, this relies on the broken logic.

Even if hvmloader is altered and does things differently, it is still
bogus to draw any inference of vcpu_id from processor id.
