[Xen-devel] [PATCH RESEND 01/12] xen: numa-sched: leave node-affinity alone if not in "auto" mode

If the domain's NUMA node-affinity is being specified by the
user/toolstack (instead of being automatically computed by Xen),
we really should stick to that. This means domain_update_node_affinity()
is wrong when it filters out some stuff from there even in "!auto"

This commit fixes that. Of course, this does not mean node-affinity
is always honoured (e.g., a vcpu won't run on a pcpu of a different
cpupool) but the necessary logic for taking into account all the
possible situations lives in the scheduler code, where it belongs.

What could happen without this change is that, under certain
circumstances, the node-affinity of a domain may change when the
user modifies the vcpu-affinity of the domain's vcpus. This, even
if probably not a real bug, is at least something the user does
not expect, so let's avoid it.
