This comment is not accurate since a while, IIUC:

Up to q35-2.7: 255
q35-2.8: 288
q35-8.0+: 1024
q35-9.0: 4096

Yes, I think there should be no need to mention older versions here?

Since the Q35's 4096 CPUs change will be stated in the v9.0 release, I
doubt we should synchronize the doc update (so I added the "for-v9.0?"
tag to throw this question out).

Thanks,
Zhao
