I certainly can modify the original ones directly. When developing, it in the 4.4 freeze, and I wanted my changes to easily co-exist with libxc. (If you notice, these patches are in XenServer trunk for easy deployment against our entire set of weird & wacky hardware).

If there general agreement that making the old xc_{topology,numa}info() functions have the prototype and behaviour of my _bounced variants, then I will happy do that, and send some fixup to make libxl work against it.
