I don't know. It's your test :-) afaict if there aren't 4 vcpus then you
skip this test and exit, which is the same thing as report_abort'ing.
If you intend to run multiple tests and only want to skip a few when there
aren't enough vcpus, then I agree report_skip makes some sense.

On a related note, so far I've always tried to write tests that require
more than one vcpu to be testable with only two, but then test even more
if more are provided. Do you really need four for this test?

Thanks,
drew
