I found my answer to this question here:

https://help.bluebox.net/hc/en-us/articles/215805977-How-can-I-define-flavor-vCPU-topology-ex-prevent-a-flavor-from-exceeding-2-sockets-but-still-have-4-cores- (https://help.bluebox.net/hc/en-us/art...)

By specifying max_sockets the nova driver will figure out how many cores/threads it needs to set up to get the instance up to the flavor's specified number of vcpu's. In this case the hw:cpu_cores= are not needed.

Note also - this will not affect current instances for some reason. Only newly created ones.
