to be clear.
kernel task (disk I/O, network etc.) is always on first processor,
everything else on any CPU.
so as long as disk I/O network and other kernel tasks are able to fit on
one processor that's OK.
for machines doing mostly pure computing 8-16 CPU may work fine, for
machines doing mostly fileserving and routing even 2 CPUs may be not well
