Actually, hotplug works fine via sysfs:
(echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online), but the store watches for
hotplug don't seem to get triggered.  I can confirm the writes to the
store (with xs_tdb_dump), and with some debugging in the kernel I can
see that the watches never fire.  

Last changeset where vcpu-disable works is:
