[Xen-devel] [PATCH v1] Misc fixes to xentrace, docs, and add code to support selective human CPU selection.

Hey George,

These patches add a bit of code to allow users of xentrace to narrow
down a specific CPU without having to figure out a bit mask. Also they
fix the limitation of the bit mask which is it can only do up to 32-bits
- which on large machines (say 120CPUs), you can't selectively trace anything
past 32CPUs.

The code adds an -C parameter where you can do -C <starting cpu>-<end cpu>
or -C <cpu1>,<cpu2> or a combination of them. This along with 'xl vcpu-list'
makes it extremely easy to trace a specific guest (if pinned).
Thank you
