  $ qconf -srqs host-slots
     name         host-slots
     description  "restrict slots to core count"
     enabled      TRUE
     limit        hosts {*} to slots=$num_proc

How is it confusing, exactly?

In case it's not clear, it isn't the same as just doing this with
multiple queues on the host.
