I'm running a two-core laptop that, once in a great while, shows
approximately 250% CPU usage by a single process in top.  How exactly
does that work?

Note: It's not entirely surprising that this particular process is
consuming a lot of resources.  It's just surprising to me that it's
consuming more than CPUs * 100%.
