We have two known patches that seem to have no real downsides.

One is the patch posted by Andrea earlier in this thread, which seems
to target just this known regression.

The other seems to be to revert commit ac5b2c1891 and instead apply

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/alpine.DEB.2.21.1810081303060.221006@chino.kir.corp.google.com/

which also seems to be sensible.

I'm not seeing why the KVM load would react badly to either of those
models, and they are known to fix the google local-node issue.
