So, as far as this patch is concerned:

Acked-by: Dario Faggioli <dario.faggioli@xxxxxxxxxx>

This clashes (not that badly, but it does) with my soft affinity series,
that I just resent yesterday night. It's not a big deal, we just need
two arrays of libxl_bitmap-s instead of just one: one for hard affinity,
and one for soft affinity. Probably that also means that
b_info->vcpu_affinity should have to be renamed to something like
b_info->vcpu_hard_affinity (or b_info->vcpu_hard_aff, or
b_info->hard_affinity, if we want to try keep it a bit shorter).

In any case, if this series goes in first, I'll rebase mine on top of
this one and respin it. It mine goes in first, Wei, I'm up for modifying
this patch of yours as described above, if you want/need it of course.

Just let me know.
