High load average inside idle FreeBSD guest running on bhyve

I have a few bhyve instances running that all seem to have a higher load
average than what would seem normal for a system that is idle.
The host is running FreeBSD 10.1-BETA3 #2 r272300.

The head of the top output inside a guest:

Swap: 4096M Total, 4096M Free
I would have expected a load average around 0.00. Am I doing something
wrong or is there something else that could be causing this?
The guests all seem responsive and otherwise work fine.
Apart from this I haven't encountered any problems when working with
bhyve. It's nice and easy to work with. Thanks a lot for bringing this
