Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH] tools: convert cpumap bitmap to list

Are you interested in any modification of the cpumap to list conversion?
Or is it ok if vcpu-list shows a long list of integers?

I think an ordered list of cpus is most user-friendly, perhaps using range notation to keep it short (so, for example, mask 0x77 would print as '0-2, 4-6' rather than '0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 6'). A mask is a more succinct representation but maybe not so good for users. :-)

I would think mapping cpu % nr_cpus, throwing away duplicates would be
best.  With [0,1,2,3] and nr_cpus=2, cpumap would be [0,1].

I think Xen should ignore non-existent cpus in a cpumap. I'm not really fussed what you do with them in xend -- ignoring them there too would probably make most sense.
