[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 0/5] xl: allow for node-wise specification of vcpu pinning

Hi all,

This is the second take of a patch that I submitted some time ago for allowing
specifying vcpu pinning taking NUMA nodes into account. IOW, something like
 * "nodes:0-3": all pCPUs of nodes 0,1,2,3;
Â* "nodes:0-3,^node:2": all pCPUS of nodes 0,1,3;
Â* "1,nodes:1-2,^6": pCPU 1 plus all pCPUs of nodes 1,2
ÂÂ but not pCPU 6;

v1 was a single patch, this is a small series. It become necessary to do that
while coping with the review comments I got from IanJ. While at it, I am also
sending a small fix to the xl manpage, which is not related to the series, but
is still about vcpu pinning (something that I forgot to change when working on
NUMA-aware scheduling), as the first patch in the series itself.

I really believe I addressed all of Ian's comments, although, no, I haven't
converted the parsing to flex (which was not an hard requirement, AFAIUI),
because I don't think it is worthwhile in this case.

Let me know what you think about it.

Thanks and Regards,

Dario Faggioli (5):
      xl: update the manpage about "cpus=" and NUMA node-affinity
      libxl: introduce libxl_node_to_cpumap
      xl: allow for node-wise specification of vcpu pinning
      xl: implement and enable dryrun mode for `xl vcpu-pin'
      xl: test script for the cpumap parser (for vCPU pinning)
