Document CentOS high CPU workaround

It seems that for both Windows and MacOS X hosts the CPU utilisation for CentOS guests is dramatically high, even when idle. After much frustration, someone was kind enough to dig out the link to the workaround, which involves installing a custom kernel.

Please include this in the official documentation, as it will help others solve this issue sooner.

Yes, and sometimes it is enough to read the existing documentation, for instance chapter 12.4.1 in the  User Manual.
