The Fedora bot has been running ultra-stable under qemu with 512MB
allocated for the VM. I've never limited CPU or disk space. On an i7
quad core with 8GB of memory, I've been running two buildbot VMs,
four deccheck processes at 100% CPU and a web server without any
kind of noticable performance degradation.
