Don't worry about that kind of cpu on these boxes. We have dozens in
production doing only layer 2 traffic and we see usage like this:

CU234C3560XU01#show proc cpu | inc CPU
CPU utilization for five seconds: 41%/6%; one minute: 40%; five minutes: 40%

CCRH120C3560XU01#show proc cpu | incl CPU
CPU utilization for five seconds: 43%/3%; one minute: 39%; five minutes: 36%

CV108c3560Xu01#show proc cpu | incl CPU
CPU utilization for five seconds: 48%/10%; one minute: 43%; five minutes: 41%
