Fantastic. That was the major show-stopper for me writing tests
that require nested VMs. :-)

Note that for the restrictions I cloned this bug, so discussion
about that should go in #816564. The CPU stuff I'd still like
to track in this bug, though.

I think this is one of the problems where once you figure out
what the best solution is, it seems obvious, but it takes some
time and discussion to actually get to it. And I think what we
arrived at is far simpler and more elegant than what I had in
mind initially when I described my use case. The only regret I
have in this regard is that we didn't have a chance to hash
this out at DebConf (not your fault, there was just too much
going on there in general), otherwise we might have been able
to get here quite a bit quicker. ;-)
