depends on the setup ..

again, depends on the setup, for example:

 - disabling the virtual load/cpu stuff will give
   you the overall view, which might work for
   any 'detection' mechanism

 - using the hard cpu idle scheduler with only
   idle time assigned to the guest will basically
   suspend the guest when 'real' work is done

 - lowering the prio_bias for that guest might
   give other guests the necessary priority boost
